# Are these circuits equivalent?

Hi
Are the two (attached) circuits equivalent?

Also, what if any are the relation between the voltages? (ie. $$V_c, V_R$$ and $$V_1-V_2$$)
How would we apply Kirchhoff's voltage law?

thanks,

yes, the circuits are equivalent! To apply Kirchhoff's voltage law to the circuit in the picture Circuit.JPG it would be helpful to add the ground potential!

Because the capacitor and the resistor are parallel their voltage drop is the same!

I think these circuits are not very instructive!
