I'm trying to figure out MESH Analysis but for the life of me I can't seem to get the Voltage polarities on the resistors right. I usually like to assign my loop currents clockwise so I can get in some sort of a routine(I know it makes no difference). Can someone please help me explain the voltage polarities across resistors?

Here is a DC example,

Can someone please explain to me a method for choosing voltage polarities in these loops and give the MESH equations? I think I am just missing something basic, so a detailed explanation would be nice.

Thanks
