    I need to calculate the voltage at Delta V given the electrical potential differences necessitated at each load station to make a circuit. I know that 60V will be the starting point but given the "unknown" resistance I am slightly void of reason

    what does the statement of Kirchoff's loop rule say??

    I am aware that principle of resistance in series circuit assumes Rt=R1+R2+R3...

    i think that there is no need to use that equation you can do it by only using kirchoff's loop law it says that if you loop the circuit from a starting point and then come to that point again, the total potential fall or rise should be 0 Volts

    or mathematically, the sum of all the potential differences accross each device (resistance,battery,etc.) should be 0 did you get it now??

    Really? Adding them all makes it all zero? However I don't see how voltage will be summed to zero given all of them have positive values.

    So from your reasoning v2=60-1.1-2.5=56.4

    Do you realize we are almost equal to or exceeding the conceptual understanding of Kirchoff right now at the time? That means technically we are more informed than our past time physicistsXD

    I mean seriously, how does he even came to use the kinematics as the spring board for his relativity theory? I understand motion is all relative and there is no such thing as moving objects without having point of reference, he related that with time and space and E=mc^2 turned out to be his product of imagination which came true I mean wtf
