A lot of people are confused about the application of Kirchhoff’s voltage law, which states that all electric circuits will eventually behave like resistors. Well, the law applies to the behavior of a resistor, but it is especially true for circuits with switches, diodes, and transistors.
Well, this is why so many things happen when a circuit gets switched and why you can’t just expect a switch-based circuit to behave in any way but that. This also explains why you can’t just plug your phone in to a wall and expect your phone to behave like a resistor, and why you can’t just plug your phone into your computer and expect your phone to behave like a resistor. This is because a resistor can’t conduct electricity, but a switch can.
So a circuit is a switch, and kirchhoff’s law states that the voltage across a switch will be the same as the voltage across any parallel resistance of the switch. So your phone’s phone signal is not going to be the same as your computer’s signal.
The problem with this law is that it doesn’t describe a switch between two points in space, it describes a switch between two points in time. So for a phone to be able to communicate with a computer, it has to be able to transmit and receive data at the same time. That’s impossible, so the phone must be able to transmit data while it’s communicating with the computer, and vice versa.
You can imagine the problem with this law being if you have a phone and you want to send an email or a text, you cant make both simultaneously. Even if you could send an email and a text at the same time, it would take more than a second for the phone to send the email and receive the text. The phone would be transmitting data more slowly than it should. We have the same problem with computers.
Now, the law of Kirchhoff’s law states that you can send a signal faster than your receiver, the phone, is able to receive it. In this case, the phone would be able to receive the signal sooner than the phone would be receiving the signal.
So if our phone is really slow, it’s probably because it’s in a bad place. The phone is probably inside your phone box, your car, or in a microwave oven.
It’s also possible the phone is receiving data from the phone box. It’s possible it’s sending data from the car. It’s possible it’s sending data from the microwave oven. Whatever the case, if it’s not doing it right, it probably isn’t doing it at all. As the phone is sending data, its probably doing it on the wrong frequency, because this is the way it’s supposed to work.
The best way to avoid this is to not waste your time. It’s very likely your car is sending data. Its probably trying to do it in the wrong way. It probably would make no difference if it was sending data from the microwave oven.
In the case of the phone, it’s possible that it is sending data in the opposite direction of how it was supposed to. The phone probably is trying to send the same data it is supposed to send. Its possible that the microwave oven data is being sent from the phone, but because the phone is doing the same thing it’s sending data from the microwave oven, and the microwave oven data is being sent from the phone, the phone is trying to send microwave oven data in the wrong direction.
