Using Kirchhoff's rules, calculate the current in R1 with the directions indicated in the figure below. Assume that R1 = 1.00 kΩ, R2 = 3.00 kΩ, R3 = 5.00 kΩ, E1 = 60.0 V, E2 = 50.0 V and E3 = 65.0 V (Diargram in attachment). This problem has kind of stumped me. I tried setting up three equations:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

V1 = I1 * R1

V2 = I2 * R2

V3 = I3 * R3

But Im getting stuck after this on how to solve for my unknowns. Anybody have any suggestions. Thanks.
