Kirchoff's Voltage Law
This is lab 2 of 10 in the course
In this lab, students will learn how to apply Kirchoff's Voltage Law (KVL) to verify the voltage drops and supply voltage in a circuit. Kirchoff's Voltage Law implies that the sum of the voltages in any closed circuit is equal to zero. It is used to determine unknown voltage drops in a closed circuit and can also be combined with Ohm's law to find unknown currents or resistances. Students will use Multisim to simulate a circuit with multiple resistors that demonstrates Kirchoff's Voltage Law and then use the NI ELVIS III to build a real circuit that further confirms this concept.
