## Homework Statement

for the bridge circuit shown in the figure (see the attached file...question number 8), find the current in each resistor and also the equivalent resistance of the netowrk of five resistors. R1=150ohms, R2=50 ohms, R3=100ohms, R4=300 ohms, R5= 250 ohms, and E1=24V.

## Homework Equations

im not even sure where to start for this question.
im very confused and i know that i have to create 5 equations in order to solve for the currents but im not sure how to go about doing this.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

You have a variety of choices as to how to solve this problem. Everything from Kirchoff loops or nodes, to thevenin transformations or Delta-Y transformation. Some attempt is required before help can be offered.

The keyword here is the unbalanced Wheatstone bridge. Look it up on the net, there are solved examples out there.

EDIT: and yes, probably the simplest way is to apply Kirchoff loops and node equations.
