Homework Help: Current divider

  1. Feb 11, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I am asked to find i1 and i2 using current divider, so is this correct:

    i1 = (is * R1+Y1) / (R1+Y1 + R2 + Y2)

    i2 = (is * R2+Y2) / (R1+Y1 + R2 + Y2)

    i1 = (is * R1+Y1) / (R1+Y1 + R2 + Y2)
    It is not correlate. It should be

    i1 = is * (R2+Y2) / (R1+Y1 + R2 + Y2)

    and then so i2 is:

    i1 = is * (R1+Y1) / (R1+Y1 + R2 + Y2)

    Yes.

    i2 = is * (R1+Y1) / (R1+Y1 + R2 + Y2)
