freshbox said:Reference to the below 1st picture, I found that I = 0.916A.
I am trying to find I1/I2 and I tried to used the Current Divider Rule (2nd picture) But I am unable to solve it. May I know why?
Thanks.
freshbox said:I'm sorry. Yes the battery voltage is 11v.
My working:
Since I=0.916A
Using current divider rule to find i1:
I1=I x R3/(R2+R3) <--- use parentheses to make operations clear!
I1=0.916 x 2 <---- How did you arrive at 2? What are R2 and R3?
freshbox said:I suspect that there is an inductor (L2) below resistor (R2) that's why I cannot use CDR.
freshbox said:Yea sorry I added my Resistor incorrectly, thanks for pointing out, I got the answer already.
I have another question to ask you: Is the voltage for the Capacitor is 10v or some of the voltage are absorb by by the Resistor?
To my understanding, at 5T (Steady State), Capacitor acts like an open circuit hence there is no current but it's voltage is at max value.
But I'm not sure whether the Capacitor is having full voltage or some of the voltage is absorb by the R (2k ohm)
Thank you.
The current divider rule states that the current flowing through any branch of a parallel circuit is inversely proportional to the resistance of that branch. To solve for I1/I2, you would first calculate the total resistance of the circuit, then use the formula I1/I2 = R2/(R1+R2).
The current divider rule is used to determine the individual currents flowing through each branch of a parallel circuit. It helps in analyzing and understanding the behavior of the circuit.
The current divider rule is applicable to parallel circuits only. It cannot be used for series or combination circuits.
To ensure that you have applied the current divider rule correctly, you can check if the sum of the individual currents through each branch equals the total current of the circuit. If it does, then you have applied the rule correctly.
Yes, the current divider rule assumes that the branches of the parallel circuit are ideal and have equal voltage sources. In real-world circuits, this may not always be the case, so the rule may not provide an accurate result.
