Mesh Analysis
Mesh analysis (sometimes referred to as loop analysis or mesh
current method) is a method that is used to solve planar circuits for
the voltages and currents at any place in the circuit.
Planar circuits are circuits that can be drawn on a plane with
no wires overlapping each other.
Mesh analysis uses Kirchhoffs Voltage Law to solve these planar
circuits.
The advantage of using mesh analysis is that it creates a systematic
approach to solving planar circuits and reduces the number of
equations needed to solve the circuit for all of
the voltages and currents.

where,
V1, V2, ... Vn
In summing for the voltages, find the voltage rise (added terms) and voltage drop (subtracted term) in
reference to the direction of the current.
Voltage rise, sign is (+)
Voltage drop, sign is ()
