(a) Calculate the Current across parallel resistors.

(b) Calculate the lost volt across parallel resistors.

(c) Calculate the potential difference across parallel resistors.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]I = \frac{V}{R}[/tex]

[tex]Lost \ Volt = Ir[/tex]

[tex]V = IR[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

(a) [tex]1.5A[/tex] (I just added the currents of the parallel resistors.)

(b) [tex]Lost \ Volt = Ir[/tex]

[tex]= 1.3 \times 1.5[/tex]

[tex]= 1.95V[/tex]

[tex]= 2.0V[/tex]

(c) Need Help in solving it...

Thnx in advance
