If you want to save yourself a little time in the case of Figure 3-3, you can find the KCL equation for Node C simply by substituting the KCL equation for Node B into the KCL equation for Node A. If you have a lot of devices connected at one node, label that node as your circuit reference point and count it as having 0 volts (I discuss the ground symbol and reference nodes in Chapter 2). Doing so will make your calculations cleaner when you start getting into more advanced circuit analysis. In Figure 3-3, Node C has the most devices connected to it, so that’s the one you want to set equal to 0 volts as your circuit reference point.

Kirchhoff’s current law (KCL): KCL says the algebraic sum of incoming and outgoing currents at a node is equal to zero. Chapter 3 provides info on applying KCL and defines nodes in a circuit. With these three laws, you can solve for the current or voltage in any device. Applying Kirchhoff’s laws can become tedious, but you can take some shortcuts. Source transformation allows you to convert circuits to either parallel or series circuits. Then, with all the devices connected in series or in parallel, you can use the voltage divider and current divider techniques to find the voltage or current for any device.

The resistance R or conductance G is a proportionality constant relating the resistor voltage and its current. For example, if the voltage is doubled, then the current is doubled. Resistance provides a measure of difficulty in pushing electricity through a circuit. The unit of resistance is ohms (Ω), and the unit of conductance is siemens (S). For fun (if you call algebra fun), you can rearrange Ohm’s law: When you don’t know the current, use the top equation, and when you don’t know the resistance, use the bottom equation.
