Electrostatics Exam TODAY!  SNOW DAY!
 Homework:  Electrostatics Exam Scheduled for Tuesdsay, January 9th.  Watch the following videos on Kirchhoff's Laws for a new perspective on solving circuits.  Although you may have learned about the technique of using "equivalent resistance," this technique does not work well if we have more than one battery.  Kirchhoff's Laws are a much more general technique for solving any circuit.  We will be using this technique throughout this unit, so make sure you write down any questions you have since it's very important you understand this.  (You don't have to watch all of the second video... she shows you a technique for using your graphing calculator to solve simultaneous equations, but you can do this with substitution by hand instead if you want.)
