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