For the circuit shown find the current through and the potential difference across each resistor.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i was using the loop rules to make equations i could substitute into each other to solve this.. but i got stuck when i was making the last one for the currents...

thus far i have

I3= I4+I5

I1= I2+I3

and thus I1= I2+I4+I5

which then is 0=-I1+I2+I4+I5

but i need to find one with all of the currents but i cant figure out what to substitute in to get an equations with I3 in it as well. Help please

loop 1 0= -I1R1 -I3R3 - I5R5 +24

loop 2 0= -I1R1 -I2R2 +24

loop 3 0= -I2R2 +I3R3 +I4R4 +24

loop 4 0= -I4R4 +I5R5

and then i need 0= the equation for the currents..

that way i can plug it into a simultaneous solver.. but im stuck
