Correct answer: 0 . 882353 A (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: r 1 r 2 R E 1 E 2 A D E B C F i 1 i 2 I Let : E 1 = 30 V , E 2 = 15 V , r 1 = 6 Ω , r 2 = 5 Ω , and R = 22 Ω . From the junction rule, I = i 1 + i 2 . Applying Kirchhoff’s loop rule, we obtain two equations: E 1 = i 1 r 1 + I R (1) E 2 = i 2 r 2 + I R = ( I- i 1 ) r 2 + I R =- i 1 r 2 + I ( R + r 2 ) , (2) Multiplying Eq. (1) by r 2 , Eq. (2) by r 1 , E 1 r 2 = i 1 r 1 r 2 + r 2 I R E 2 r 1 =- i 1 r 1 r 2 + I r 1 ( R + r 2 ) Adding, E 1 r 2 + E 2 r 1 = I [ r 2 R + r 1 ( R + r 2 )] I = E 1 r 2 + E 2 r 1 r 2 R + r 1 ( R + r 2 ) = (30 V) (5 Ω) + (15 V) (6 Ω) (5 Ω) (22 Ω) + (6 Ω) (22 Ω + 5 Ω) = . 882353 A .
