## Homework Statement

Here is the diagram of the circuit:

**KVL for a RLC circuit given current direction and polarity of a resistor?**Here is the diagram of the circuit:

## Homework Equations

KVL

Sum of voltages equal zero

## The Attempt at a Solution

I am actually looking for the voltage across the inductor (VL), so I decided the best approach in finding it is through Kirchoff's Voltage Law.

Being given the polarity of the resistor, should I follow the passive sign convention for the other components in the circuit while doing KVL...if I decide to do a loop in the counterclockwise direction?

I understand that current conventionally flows through the positive terminal to the negative.

So would it be correct if I label the circuit like this, if I did a KVL mesh counterclockwise?:

Any help would be appreciated, thank you. :)
