    There is something called "Kirchoff's Loop" rule for circuits. It should be relatively easy to find.

    The sum of current and voltage around any closed loop should be zero. Thats pretty much what kirchoff's rule says.

    You could use that fact to find the electric potential at a certain point in a circuit.
