What is Kirchoff’s Loop Rule?
In this video Paul Andersen explains how Kirchoff’s Loop Rule can be used to calculate the voltage of different components of a circuit. The sum voltage throughout an entire loop will sum to zero following the law of conservation of energy. An analogy and several examples are included. In Physics 1 students should be able to apply Kirchoff’s loop rule to a simple circuit with a battery and resistor. In Physics 2 capacitors and parallel circuitry are included.
