Question

The purpose of this experiment is to familiarize the student with the above theorems, laws and techniques in analyzing simple circuits. KVL (Kirchhoff's Voltage Law) states that the sum of the voltages around a closed loop must equal zero. KCL (Kirchhoff's Current Law) states that the sum of currents going into a particular node (or point) must equal the sum of currents leaving that same node (or point). Ohm's Law dictates that for a resistance voltage must equal product of current times resistance assuming that the voltage and current meet requirements of passive sign convention.Series/Parallel reduction of resistance allows one to simplify a complex network of resistors in various combinations and replace it with just one equivalent resistance. When observed from the same 2 nodes as the original network, the single equivalent resistance will exhibit the same behavior (the current-voltage relationship). 1. Circuit 1: Kirchhoff's Voltage Law: Perform circuit analysis by hand of the circuit below and obtain element voltages V1, V2, and V3.
