Verification of Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law Lab Experiment
Electronics components are not always connected in a clear-cut series or parallel or series-parallel arrangement. Instead, the circuit connections may be more complex. As an example, unbalanced wheatstone bridge circuit cannot be analyzed using the simple methods of series-parallel analysis, as there are no clear-cut series, parallel connections. For this type of circuit, a more general method of analysis is required.
Basically, applying Kirchhoff’s laws can solve any circuit, no matter how complex. The reason is that Kirchhoff’s laws do not depend on series or parallel connections. There are two laws annunciated by Kirchhoff’s, called Kirchhoff’s voltage law or KVL and Kirchhoff’s current law or KCL.
In this experiment we study the Kirchhoff’s voltage law, generally abbreviated as KVL. This law states that the sum of the voltage sources and Ir drops around any closed path must equal Zero. Any closed path is called a loop. When adding voltages in a closed Path, if you start from any point at one potential and come back to the same point and the same potential, the difference of potential must be zero. When determining the algebraic signs for the voltage terms in a closed path, consider any voltage source or drop whose positive terminal is reached first as positive, and any voltage source or whose negative terminal is reached first as negative.
- Three isolated D.C Power Supplies
- Dc Voltmeter 0-50v
- Resistors: AB=100 CD=56 EF=82 GH=JA=100
- Bread Board
- Jumper Wires
- Construct the circuit shown in the figure
- Close switch de
- Commence at point a and measure the potential difference between each successive pair of lettered terminal
- Note in each case whether the potential difference measured represents a rise or a fall in potential.
- Open switch de.
- Commence at point and repeat the procedure of part.
Draw a graph set of axes with abscissa uniformly scaled to represent the lettered points of the circuit. Commence and finish with the letter a. the ordinate is to represent positive and negative potentials.
Analysis, Deductions and conclusion:
- Has Kirchhoff’s voltage been verified?
- What facts determined from the experimental result support this decision?
- It is correct to say that in any closed loop in a circuit there is a much voltage rise as there is voltage fall?
- Do voltage fall occur always and only over resistor?
- Do voltage rises occur always and only over source of supply?
Give reasons to support your answers for parts B, C and D.
