# kirchoff's law watch

1. can any1 plz tell me wot they r one about becoz i really dont gt it! thanks
2. u wont get asked about them specifically although it might be good to mention them in some answeres

theres two of them:

Kirchoffs First law.
The total current flowing towards a junction is equal to the total current flowing away from that junction.# i.e the algebraic sum of the currents flowing towards a junction is zero

Kirchoffs Second Law
In a closed circuit the algebraic sum of the products of the current and the resistance of each part of the circuit is equal to the resultant e.m.f in the circuit.
