1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In the figure, R = 5.8kΩ. Determine the current through the 14-V battery, and the potential difference between points a and b. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I was told to use Kirchoff's Rules to analyze the circuit, but I'm not sure how I should start, and how to determine the current through each resistor.
