Calculate the current i5 in the configuration. Use the following data: i1=8.65 A, i2=5 A, i3=7.85 A, and i4=8.5 A.
Kirchoff's junction rule states that the sum of the currents meeting at a junction has to equal zero.
The Attempt at a Solution
According to the junction rule, i1+i2+i4=i3+i5. When I plugged in the numbers, I got i5=14.3 A but my homework says that is wrong. Does the direction of the arrows affect the outcome or am I overthinking it at this point?
