Kirchhoff's Loop Rule Virtual Lab

General Aim of Kirchhoff's Loop Rule

To verify Kirchhoff’s laws for electric circuits.

Method of Kirchhoff's Loop Rule

Two-loops circuit.

Learning Objectives of Kirchhoff's Loop Rule

  • State Kirchhoff’s laws for electric circuits.

  • Apply Kirchhoff’s current law at node (or junction) points in an electric circuit.

  • Apply Kirchhoff’s voltage law around closed loops within electric circuits.

  • Deduce the value of the current in different branches of an electric circuit.

Theory of Kirchhoff's Loop Rule

Kirchhoff’s First Law (or kirchhoff's current law) KCL
It is based on the principle of conservation of charge. It states that the sum of current that entering the junction equals the sum of current that leaves the junction.

Kirchhoff’s Second Law (or kirchhoff's voltage law) KVL
It is based on the principle of conservation of charge. It states that around any closed path, the sum of all voltage drops on all branches within the loop is equal to the sum of the emf’s of the batteries within the loop.

Kirchhoff's Loop Rule Principle of Work

Kirchhoff's loop rule depends on applying Kirchhoff’s laws to the circuit then measuring the currents in different branches. On the other hand, we theoretically apply Kirchhoff’s to the circuit and calculate the currents in the different branches. Then compare the results to check the validity of Kirchhoff’s laws.
