Homework Help: Electric circuit

  1. Feb 1, 2005 #1
    Hello everyone. This problem has me stumped.
    The questioin asks,
    " find the magnitude (current) and direction of both resistor 1 and resistor2"
    (in the picture the top resistor is resistor 1)
    I know [tex] V=IR [/tex], but I am stumped at how the different potentials interact with eachorther at resistor 2? Could someone please give me some guidance as to starting this?
    Thanks so much

    The picture isn't working, can you describe the circuit?
    Are the resistors in series or parallel.
    What is the source of EMF and how is it connected ( Series or parallel ).
