The solution of complex electrical circuits can be arrived at by applying Kirchhoff’s Current and Voltage Laws across loops and junction. But this approach is very tedious, involves a lot of calculation steps and is prone to human errors at each step.

## Condition for this theorem

For this shortcut to work the following conditions must be satisfied,

- a given circuits should be redraw-able to a series of branches
- and each branch should have a resistor element in it.

The above circuit has three branches: ACB, AB and ADB. All these branches has at least one resistor element in it.

The beauty of this approach is that the calculation is just a one-step formula!

The results are summarized as below

Resistance | Voltage Drop, V | Current, Amp | Direction |
---|---|---|---|

R1 = 6 | -1.2 | 0.2 | C to A |

R2 = 6 | 4.8 | 0.8 | A to B |

R3 = 12 | -7.2 | 0.6 | D to A |

This is one of the shortcut tricks to solve complex electrical circuit problems.

I cannot tell a lie, that really helped.
