## Summary:

- About the relation between k-terminal device descriptive currents and voltages

Hi,

I'm aware it is an odd question. Consider a ##k##-terminal electrical device as black-box.

We know from KLC and KLV that just ##k-1## currents and ##k-1## voltages are actually independent (descriptive currents and voltages).

Furthermore we generally expect there exist ##k-1## relations between them (thus for example assigning ##k-1## currents basically fix the remaining ##k-1## voltages).

My doubt is: is that always true ? In other words: from a theretically point of view it could be that no relation exist between descriptive currents and voltages ?
