## Main Question or Discussion Point

hi! I need some assistance regarding my assignment. hope there's anyone who could help me out. the questions are:

V = IR; I=V/R

so... first i have to get the total resistance to get the total current and voltage right? (Please correct me if i'm wrong. thanks! :D)

R12 = 8ohms + 16ohms = 24ohms

1/RT = 1/R12 + 1/R3

1/RT = 1/24 + 1/12ohms

1/RT = 1/8 ohms

Rt = 8 ohms

It = Vt/Rt

It = 48Volts / 8 ohms

It = 6 A

Vt = 48? (i really dont know how to solve for the total voltage)

I1 = It

I1 = V1/R1

I1 = 50V / 1.95ohms

I1 = 25.64 A

I2 = 50V / 0.05ohms

I2 = 1000 A

**1.a. a 12 ohms resistor is connected in parallel with a series combination of resistors of 8 ohms and 16 ohms. if voltage drop across the 8 ohms resistor, is 48 volts. Determine the total impressed voltage and total current. Vt=? It=?****1.b. Relevant equations**V = IR; I=V/R

**1.c. The attempt at a solution**so... first i have to get the total resistance to get the total current and voltage right? (Please correct me if i'm wrong. thanks! :D)

R12 = 8ohms + 16ohms = 24ohms

1/RT = 1/R12 + 1/R3

1/RT = 1/24 + 1/12ohms

1/RT = 1/8 ohms

Rt = 8 ohms

*here's the part where i'm totally confused*It = Vt/Rt

It = 48Volts / 8 ohms

It = 6 A

Vt = 48? (i really dont know how to solve for the total voltage)

**2.a. 2 resistors 1.95ohms and 0.05ohms are connected in parallel and takes a total current of 50V. What is the current in each resistor?****2.b. Relevant equations**I1 = It

I1 = V1/R1

**2.c. The attempt at a solution**I1 = 50V / 1.95ohms

I1 = 25.64 A

I2 = 50V / 0.05ohms

I2 = 1000 A
