(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In the circuit shown, the battery provides a current I = 0.3 A to the resistor.

The battery is 12 V, and it states a current of .3A

a. How much current is returned by the resistor to the negative terminal of the battery?

b. How much current flows inside the battery from the negative to the positive terminal?

2. Relevant equations

Ohm's Law I = VR

3. The attempt at a solution

What I don't get is that all three variables are given. 12v/50A = .3ohms, but that just verifies the given. How would I determine the current returned to the resistor?
