Kirchhoff's Rules will help you understand current and voltage in complex circuits. This worksheet and quiz will help you test your understanding of these rules and how they can be used to analyze the power needs of complex electrical circuits.

In this assessment you'll be tested on your ability to:

- Distinguish between the two Kirchhoff Rules
- Understand how Kirchhoff's Rules apply to a complex circuit
- Calculate voltage drop or voltage rise across a circuit
- Analyze current and voltage in complex circuits

This quiz and worksheet will allow you to test the following skills:

**Problem solving**- use acquired knowledge to solve circuitry practice problems**Defining key concepts**- ensure that you can accurately define Kirchhoff's Rules**Distinguishing differences**- compare and contrast current and voltage, as well as voltage drop and voltage rise**Knowledge application**- use your knowledge to analyze a complex circuit

To learn more about Kirchhoff's Rules and complex circuitry, review the accompanying lesson on applications of Kirchhoff's Rules, which covers the following objectives:

- Describe the two Kirchhoff's Rules
- Apply Kirchhoff's Rule for current in analyzing a complex circuit
- Apply Kirchhoff's Rule for voltage in analyzing a complex circuit
- Calculate voltage rise and voltage drop
- Solve the algebraic equation for voltage differences
