okay I got a question asking me to determine the currents in I1, I2, and I3 in a circuit assuming that the resistance of each battery is 1 ohm (I drew a seperate 1ohm resistor after every battery to represent this) and the terminal voltage of the 6V battery(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

now I have drawn a diagram of the circuit and labeled every part of it, I am assuming I have to use Kirchhoff's Rules to solve this problem

now here is where I get stuck, do I make 3 loops since there are 3 batteries or will 2 loops be fine

(using the diagram loop 1 will probably be 'abefa' and loop 2 will be 'abcdefa', do I need loop 3 'ebcde')

also at which point should I apply Kirchhoff's junction rule?
