1. Homework Statement
The following circuit is given, and all voltage, current, resistance and power must be found for each resistor.
I have found the following information:
V_{src} = ?
I_{src} = .5A
R_{src} = ?
P_{src} = ?
V_{1} = ?
I_{1} = .5A
R_{1} = ?
P_{1} = ?
V_{2} = 2.5V
I_{2} = .25A
R_{2} = 10
P_{2} = .625W
V_{3} = 2.5V
I_{3} = .25A
R_{3} = 10
P_{3} = .625W
V_{4} = 5V
I_{4} = .25A
R_{4} = 20
P_{4} = 1.125W
How would I solve for the information of R_{1}?
2. Homework Equations
V = IR
3. The Attempt at a Solution
I originally had thought that V_{1} is 5V, as the current is the same as the simplified parallel section. If the voltage from the cells is constant, and half of the circuit uses 5V, then I had assumed the other section would use 5V as well, as both currents are the same.
