Consider the circuit shown in the figure . Suppose the four resistors in this circuit have the values R1 = 12 , R2 = 6.0 , R3 = 7.3 , and R4 = 15 , and that the emf of the battery is E = 18V .

(1) Find the current through each resistor using the rules for series and parallel resistors. Answer in terms of (I1, I2, I3, I4)

(2) Find the current through each resistor using Kirchhoff's rules. Answer in terms of (I1, I2, I3, I4)

Be a lot easier to help you if you actually posted the figure you are talking about.

Also, use the template and show some attempt on you own. We don't just feed answers here.

Now what eqns have you got at your disposal and what did you do with them so far ?

And: welcome to PF :-)
