## Homework Statement

For the following questions, use the schematic below, where R1 = 3.0 Ω and R2 = 17.0 Ω.

(a) What is the equivalent resistance between points A and B for this combination of resistors?

3.83 Ω

(b) A 8-V emf is connected to the terminals A and B. What is the current through the 1.0-Ω resistor connected directly to point A?

2.1 A

(c) What is the current in the resistor R2?

## Homework Equations

P=I^2*R

V=R*I

## The Attempt at a Solution

now I got part A and part B was just the voltage on B divided by A. But I can't figure out how part C is different. Because i used the ohms for all of the resistors added together and I'm confused as to how that's different? I've included a screenshot.
