1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations KVL: At any instant in a closed loop the algebraic sum of the e.m.f's acting round the loop is equal to the algebraic sum of the p.d's round the loop. 3. The attempt at a solution 3.1 R1 = BROWN, RED, BLACK, NONE R2 = BROWN, GREY, BROWN, SILVER R3 = ORANGE, WHITE, BROWN, GOLD R4 = BROWN, BLACK, RED, SILVER R5 = BROWN. RED, RED, RED 3.2 I want to add R2 and R4 because they are in series. 180ohms + 1000ohms = 1180ohms The R2+R4 are in parallel with R5. (1/1180+1/1200)^-1=594.96ohms Using KVL: V=IR 9=I1x12 I1=9/12=0.75A I2=9/594.96=0.015A I3=5/390=0.013A Okay so I'm pretty sure this is not correct but the middle area with R2, R4 and R5 is really confusing me. Why is there I5 when we already have current I2? Also I assume I4 is the little arrow indicated above R4 but by that reasoning then there should be a current above R2 as well? Please help me understand this.
