We always assume that all the voltage, in no matter what type of (basic, I guess) circuit we are dealing with, is used up. I can see why this is true. Imagine a circuit with low resistance - and correct me if I am wrong, but from electrostatics, we know that an electric field, similar to magnetic fields, accelerates charges.
Now mustn't it be that some charges arrive at the end of the circuit (into the positive charge reservoir) with some velocity, higher than that with which they began.
Essentially, if seems to me what we always assume that the electrons always do the maximum that they could, no matter what the conditions.
Is it my misunderstanding that such an assumption exists or are there some ideas I am completely oblivious of?
Please ask if you want any clarifications.
