In the circuit shown in the figure, the rate at which R1 is dissipating electrical energy is 20.0 W.
I just have questions about the circuit's setup. The resistors are arranged in a parallel circuit?
As for the purple arrows, is 2.00 A I_1 and 3.50 A the total current in the circuit?
The Attempt at a Solution
This is just a preliminary question. I shall post my workings at a later time if I am baffled by the questions associated with the figure.
