Homework Help: GRADE 11 parallel circuit TEST TOMORROW !

  1. Dec 18, 2007 #1
    A current of 4.80 A leaves a battery and separates into three currents running through three parallel loads. The current to the first load is 2.50 A, the current to the second load is 1.80 A, and the resistance of the third load is 108 [resistance sign here ] .

    calculate (a) the equivalent resistance for the circuit
    (b) the resistance of the first and second loads

    please and thankyouu !!

    Please show some work and effort. What is the relationship among, voltage, current and resistance? What is the significance of the voltage across parallel loads?
