## Homework Statement

If KVL was not true, would our definition of Voltage still make sense? Clearly explain and prove your answer

## Homework Equations

KVL definition

Voltage definition

## The Attempt at a Solution

I said no, because if KVL were not true, then definition of voltage would not make sense. By the law of energy conservation, Energy input = energy output( i may be wrong? but intuitive to me, since a circuit is a closed system). Since voltage by definition is the energy required to move 1C of charge from 1 node to another. The sum of voltages in a closed system must equal 0, since a system cannot have excess energy, as it must be either used,stored or dissipated

Thoughts guys? Proff made this question, and ive never come across a theoretical question like this in a engineering course
