As part of my as physics work i have to calculate the 'cell current', but we haven't covered this in class.

I have searched on google but nothing has come up.

If somebody could point me in the right direction, i'd appreciate it.

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply.

I am working through the question:

A cell of emf 3.0v and negligible internal resistance is connected to a 4.0 Ohm resistor in series with a parallel combination of a 24.0 Ohm resistor and a 12.0 OHm resistor. Calculate:

-the total circuit resistance (which i've calculated as 12.0V)

-and the cell current

That's all the info that's given.

For the cell current, you want to know what current the cell will be providing to the circuit.
