Series and parallel circuit

  1. May 11, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hello, can you help with this problem.
    For the next circuit, determine the voltages
    2. Relevant equations
    I=V/RT
    RT=R1+R2+R3+...+Rn
    P=V^2/R

    V=V1=V2=V3
    I=V/R
    GT=1/R1+1/R2+1/R3+...+1/Rn
    3. The attempt at a solution
    My background is that I only know a very few and I don´t know how to determine the points and for where to start to solve this circuit.
    My idea was try to solve first as a paralell circuit and then as a series circuit.

    Do you know Kirchhoff's Laws?

    I know that the sum of the currents in the circuit must be equal to zero and that the algebraic sum of the voltages must be equal to zero, I know this because I am self studying this topic, bue I don't have idea of the procedure to follow.

    Sounds like you need to find some additional study/review materials with worked examples. Try a web search with the phrase: KCL KVL examples. You should find both text and video resources.
