# kirchoff’s law problem

**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

See attached image.

Suppose I want to find the current through each resistor how would I do so?

**2. Relevant equations**

Kirchoffs eqns sum of voltages around every loop is zero

**3. The attempt at a solution**

1. The first problem I have with this, is that i am not sure how many currents there are. I put arrows in different colors the currents that I think there are. Could someone verify this step?

2. If (1) is correct, then I think that the blue current = red + green current

3. Next, I would attempt at using kirchoff’s law on the smallest loop, and the loop which does not involve the top two resistors (the one with 5 resistors and 2 batteries in it). Then i would solve for current using a matrix.

So generally speaking, is this a correct method?
