Textbook Problem

A ski resort consists of a few chairlifts and several interconnected downhill runs on the side of a mountain, with a lodge at the bottom. The lifts are analogous to batteries, and the runs are analogous to resistors. Describe how two runs can be in series. Describe how three runs can be in parallel. Sketch a junction of one lift and two runs. One of the skiers is carrying an altimeter. State Kirchhoff’s junction rule and Kirchhoff’s loop rule for ski resorts.

To determine
The Kirchhoff junction rule and loop rule for the ski resorts.

Explanation

The downhill runs are considered as resistors. The chairlift is analogous to a battery.

The Junction rule states that the number of skiers entering a junction is equal to the number of skiers leaving it...
