Re: Shock Value B/Circuit Lab C

Oops, I meant "multilooped. It autocorrected it 0.o As in, circuits with multiple batteries. Can someone explain why the loop and current directions when using kirkhoffe's rules are arbitrary? Because if you choose the direction to be wrong, you'll simply end up with a negative current. Howeve...

Er.. for Q4: Prevalence ratio??


No problem.

No, not prevalence ratio. I just checked, the term is in the wiki (albeit with a less formal definition!), which means you should know it. ;)
