# Determining loops in circuit

For some reason I can't wrap my head around this concept. I find it really hard to find the loops in circuits. This is problem, since I can create all the equations from second Kirchhoff law. Is there any precise algorithm, which I can use to find them. When I'm searching for the loops i'm starting from the top-right element and go to the lowest-left element. But I'm constantly missing loops. I'll give an example of the process which is happening in my head when I'm searching for loops. Given this circuit:

1. Start from R1, pass through the whole circuit 1st loop
2. Start from R1, pass through r2 then v2 and r3, 2nd loop
3. Start from R2, pass through R4 then V3 and R5, 3rd loop
4. Start from R3, pass through R6 then R4 4th loop
I don't see any other loops on the circuit
• Looks like you found all loops. So what's the question? Commented Dec 16, 2017 at 18:43
• I'm asking if this is the right way to do it. Or a way to determine if this is the correct count. Commented Dec 16, 2017 at 18:48
• More like an aptitude question. No algo n all. Just observe carefully to find all loops. Commented Dec 16, 2017 at 19:06
• I forgot to add the word "Relevant". You got all the relevant loops. Commented Dec 18, 2017 at 1:52
