Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law Formula
Vs = (V1+V2+Vn)
- Where Vs is the total voltage or source voltage
- V1, V2, Vn are the voltages in a closed-loop
- n is the number of loops
To calculate the source voltage using the Kirchhoff’s voltage law, add together the voltages of the closed-loop.
Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law Definition
This law states that the sum of all voltages in a closed circuit must equal 0. Therefore, the sum of the voltages across each loop is equal to the total voltage and source voltage.
How to calculate kirchhoff’s voltage law?
- First, determine the individual voltages.
Measure the individual voltages in each loop.
- Next, calculate the total voltage.
Sum together each individual voltage to get the total voltage.
Kirchhoff’s voltage law states that some of the voltages in a closed-circuit must equal 0.
