Experiment 1 - The Circuit
Kirchhoff's laws make statements about the current and voltage in a circuit.
But first, consider a simple circuit without junctions or multiple loops.
Build the circuit as shown...
Circuit diagram of two resistors in a series circuit.
Perform the experiments only with resistors
of the power class of 5 Watts!
Resistors of lower power classes become very hot
and may burn out.
Circuit with two resistors in a series circuit.
As soon as you connect the battery,
the two resistors heat up slightly.
A current flows through both resistors
and turns electric energy into heat.
However, you want to understand the relation of current
and voltage in this circuit...
