## Homework Statement

[PLAIN]http://img802.imageshack.us/img802/9172/qns33.png [Broken]

Simplifying the circuit?

Also find the power dissipated in the circuit?

## Homework Equations

[tex]P=I^2R[/tex]

[tex]V=IR[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tired to simply the diagonal by making it parallel with (15+18ohms) and the (10+16ohms) and i get

[tex]R = (\frac{1}{33}+\frac{1}{48}+\frac{1}{16})^{-1} = 8.8ohms

[/tex]

Power of 15ohms is: [tex]1.3^2 * 15 = 25.35W[/tex]

Now how would i find the power dissipated for the rest of the resistors?

P.S
