I've been asked to teach an electrical engineering course, due to lack of EE people at my college. I've been running through Mesh , nodal analysis etc. Its seems like these are just variations of using kirchoff's voltage and current continuity equations. It seems pointless to me, i've been able to solve every problem just using intuition and kirchoffs laws. All this mesh and supermesh stuff just seems like memorizing procedures to reduce the amount of algebra ( i guess). Am I missing something? Is there something these methods can do that kirchoffs methods can not?
