Determine the magnitudes and directions of the currents through R1 and R2 in Fig. 19-47, where R1 = 37 and R2 = 16 .

Figure 19-47

(image attached)

V1 = 9.0 V

V3 = 6.0 V

R1 = 37 [tex]\Omega[/tex]

R2 = 16 [tex]\Omega[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

V = IR

3. The attempt at a solution

V = IR

6.0 V = (37[tex]\Omega[/tex]) I

.16216 A = I [tex]_{}1[/tex](correct)

V = IR

6.0 = (16[tex]\Omega[/tex]) I

.375 A = I[tex]_{}2[/tex] (incorrect)
