Unformatted text preview: through the circuit, and we are only concerned with finding the division between R 20 , R 80 . 2.5A 20Ω 80Ω i b i a Simply use the current divider equation to get the final current division. a) ° ? = 2.5 ² ∗ 80 20 + 80 ± = 2 ² b) ° ? = 2.5 ² ∗ 20 20 + 80 ± = .5 ² c) To find the voltage across these parallel resistors, simply remember that parallel resistors will have the same voltage drop. 50V 4Ω 16Ω Returning to the above “equivalent” circuit, we can use a basic voltage divider equation to determ ine the voltage drop across the two resistors: ³ 16 Ω = 50 ³ 16 4 + 16 ± = 40 ³...
