Kirchhoff’s Current Law
Charge can’t build up at the junction.
Kirchhoff’s Current Law - Example
a) Solve for I
b) Solve for Vab
c) Solve for power output of
the emf of each battery

We buy energy from the Power Company, not power
kW x time = watt-seconds = Joules
1 kWh = (1000W) (3600 s ) = 3.6 x 106 W-s = 3.6 x 106 J
