Thanks, I was confused on Kirchoff's rules til i saw this. Really cleared things up.

Kirchhoff's Rules

  • First rule: If you go around a circuit loop the potential drop is zero.
  • Second rule: At a node, the total current entering the node is equal to the total current leaving the node.

  • Intro 0:00
  • First Kirchhoff Rule 0:19
    • Two Resistance Connected With a Battery
    • Many Resistance
    • Increase in Potential from A to B
    • Charge Flowing fromHigher Potential to Lower Potential
  • Second Kirchhoff Rule 9:17
    • Current Entering
    • Total Current Arriving is Equal Current Leaving
  • Example 14:10
    • Battery 6 V, Resistance 20, 30 Ohms and Another Battery 4v
    • Current Entering I2+I3
  • Example 2 31:20
    • 2 Loop circuit with 6v and 12 v and Resistance, Find Current in Each Resistance
  • Example 3 42:02
    • Battery and Resistance in Loops
  • Ammeters and Voltmeters 56:22
    • Measuring Current is Introducing an Ammeter
    • Connecting Voltmeter, High Resistance
  • Extra Example 1: Find Current
  • Extra Example 2: Find Current
  • Extra Example 3: Find Current
