1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I have a circuit that has...(I will refer to each resistor as E$$_{}1$$ and E$$_{}2$$.
5V battery with two resistors.
Each resistor has 5$$\Omega$$ of resistance.
E$$_{}1$$'s Current dissipated is 1A, E$$_{}2$$ is the same.
Voltage dissipated by E$$_{}1$$ is .2V, E$$_{}2$$ is the same.
Power dissipated by E$$_{}1$$ is .2W, E$$_{}2$$ is also .2W.

2. Relevant equations

I am looking for Energy dissipated by each element (E$$_{}1$$, E$$_{}2$$) is.

3. The attempt at a solution
?? Not sure. ??

Well, I can't imagine any circuit containing a 5V battery and two identical resistors that's capable of producing the voltage or power values you have included.

Power is just energy per unit time.

I calculated those. "/ Are they wrong?

also the time is one minute (60 seconds).
