Applying Series-Parall.et simpLifi cation Find i,. rr . aod i2 in lhe ci-rcuil shown in Fig.3.s. Solution We begin by noting that the 3 f,) resistor is in senes wirh rbe 6 Q resistor.we Lherelore replace lhis series combination with a 9 O resistor, reducing the circuit to the one shown in Fig. 3.10(a). We now can replace the parallel combhation of the 9 O and 18 O resis- tors with a single resistance of (18 x 9)/(18 + 9), or 6 O. Egure 3.i0(b) shows t]Iis turtler reduction of the circuit.The nodes x and y marked on all diagmms facilitate tracing through t]le reduction of the circuit. From Fig. 3.10(b) you can veiify that iJ equals 120/10, or 12 A. Figure 3.11 shows the iesult at this point in the analysis. We added the voltage ?)1 to help cladfy the subsequent discussion.

(Note that there are thee closed paths that can be tested.) Showing t]Iat the power delivered by the voltage souce equals the total power dissipated in the rcsistors also is informative. fsee Prcblems 3.3 and 3.4.)...
