2Ω resistor A, 1Ω resistor B and 4Ω resistor C are connected in parallel. The combination is connected … A and C, (ii) The…

Answers:

The diagram of the arrangement is shown in Fig.

(i) The current in resistor A is I1 = V/R1 = 2/2 = 1.0A

The current in resistor B is I2 = V/R2 = 2/1 = 2.0 A

The current in resistor C is I3 = V/R3 = 2/4 = 0.5 A

(ii) The current through battery I = I1 + I2 + I3

I = 1.0 +  2.0 + 0.5

= 3.5 Ampere.
