1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data This was a test question. I know how to solve it. I just need someone to explain to me how to derive current for each side of the battery. I did it wrong on the test and failed miserably. But hey, i caught my mistake while thinking about it after. *note, the actual test did not include variables, i just threw them in there to simulate to get a better understanding. The test was asked to derive the current and voltage across R2 2. Relevant equations Super Position, KCL, Ohms law 3. The attempt at a solution Do Superposition on each battery. Find the current coming of the batteries by simplifying circuit. Then current going through R2 is the sum of the currents from the 2 batteries. Then use Ohms law to find voltage across resistor. HOWEVER, i noticed that from the simulating, the current through 1 battery is half of the total current through R2! I made a huge mistake during the test, and derived that the current from 1 battery is the amount through R2! Can someone explain where intuitively to derive a 1/2 number for the current from superposition?
