I understand all this. I understand that the voltage must return to V1 after completing the loop. But as you move along the wire where the voltage is a constant V1, deltaV must be 0 which implies that E must be 0 along the circuit path as deltaV is the work done by E. But since a current exists and is the same throughout the circuit, this implies that E must exist. So my question is how can deltaV be zero but the E not be 0?
