## Homework Statement

don't mind my cruddy drawing :P

R

_{1}to R

_{3}= 1000 Ω

R

_{4}to R

_{5}= 2000 Ω

i

_{1}= 1mA= 1x10

^{-3}A

**Find the current through each resistor.**

## Homework Equations

parallel R

_{p}= (sum)(1/R

_{i})

^{-1}

series R

_{s}= (sum)(R

_{i)})

ΔV=iR

## The Attempt at a Solution

i'm not sure of the best way to star this one because it is a little awkward to me. I thought the best way to do it would be to find Equivalent Resistance, but I have no idea how to do that with this geometry.

i know current at the start equals the end. each loop from start to finish ends in 0 potential0 = ΔV -i

_{2}R

_{1}- i

_{5}R

_{2}- i

_{6}R

_{3}

0 = ΔV -i

_{2}R

_{1}- i

_{4}R

_{5}

0= ΔV - i

_{3}R

_{4}- i

_{6}R

_{3}

i

_{1}= i

_{2}+ i

_{3}
