1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

(a) What is the equivalent resistance of the network of resistors in Figure 6.13?

(b) What current exists in the 3.0 Ω resistor?

R1=2ohms, R2=6ohms, R3=6ohms, R4=6ohms, R5=6ohms, R7=3ohms, V1=6V

2. Relevant equations

V=IR

1/Rt=1/R1+1/R2+1/R3...

3. The attempt at a solution

(a)The diagonal resistor confused me.

1/Rt1=1/2+1/6

Rt1=1.5ohms

1/Rt2=1/6+1/6+1/6+1/6

Rt2=1.5ohms

Rt=1.5+1.5+3.0=6.0ohms

(b)Tried, but may be wrong way to do it.

V=IR

I=V/R

I=6.0V/6.0ohms

I=1.0A
