Find currents I1 and I2 in the following circuit:
I know I have to use Kirchoff's loop rule but I am not sure of the current going through the 5 ohm and 8 ohm resistors, is it just I1 and I2 respectively? Also do I incorporate the large loop at the bottom?
The Attempt at a Solution
-12 - (1)I1 - (5)I1 = 0
-9 - (1)I2 - (8)I2 = 0
I get negative answers with the above^
This is a practice midterm problem, so it's not my actual homework.[/B]
