Write the loop rule for each of the following circuits:
Depending on the loop:
-emf + IR1 + IR2 + .... + IRn = 0
V = IR
If in series: R1 + R2 + ... Rn = R
If in parallel: 1/R1 + 1/R2 + ... 1/Rn = 1/R
The Attempt at a Solution
I really don't know how to do these because we usually only had 1 battery. But here's my shot:
(A) Could you say that both batteries are in series and treat them as one battery, then say the R2 and R3 are in parallel?
(B) and (C) I don't have the slightest clue. For (B), I don't know if you can say that R1, R2, and R3 are in series with emf3 there, and (C) we've never had a battery in parallel (We either had 1 battery or 2 batteries in series).
