Episode 117: Kirchhoff’s Laws *suitable for home teaching*

From the Institute of Physics, this learning episode links Kirchhoff’s circuit laws to the conservation of charge and energy. Students can verify the laws experimentally and use them to solve simple circuit problems.

This learning episode involves the following activities:
• demonstrating the conservation of charge and energy transfer using an electric motor
• current and potential difference in series and parallel circuits
• using simple circuits to verify Kirchoff's laws
• student questions using Kirchoff’s laws (solutions provided)
