In 1864 the Scottish physicist James Maxwell published the Maxwell's equations. Although the Kirchhoff's laws can be derived directly from the Maxwell equations, the Kirchhoff's laws remained to be see as separate rules since they illustrated the current and voltage in an electrical circuit in a simple and graphic manner.
Still today, the Kirchhoff's laws are used in the network analysis, as used in the development of complex integrated circuits and microprocessors.
In this first part you get to know in 9 experiments the Kirchhoff's laws in simple electric circuits . Thereby you the Current and Voltage Law are discussed.
In the second part (Go on ...) you experience in other 7 experiments the consequences arising from Kirchhoff's laws and how they can be used to analyze complex circuits.
Let's go...and have fun...
