Homework Statement
two batteries are connected as shown, see attached 'drawing.' what is the terminal voltage across each battery
Homework Equations
electric potential V = IR where I is current, R is resistance
I = V_0/R * e^(t/RC) where t is time, C is capacitance <RC circuit, discharging (10V batt.)
I = dQ/dt where t is time, Q is charge
I = epsilon/R e^(t/RC) where epsilon is emf <RC circuit, charging (5V battery)
The Attempt at a Solution
i am not too sure about how to approach the problem but by looking at the drawing, i am making the assumption that the current follows a counterclockwise path and that the 10V battery is discharging >doing work on the 5V battery?
is my assumption correct, if not, how should i approach the problem?
help appreciated
