3. Use the DMM to measure the total current flowing through the circuit. Similarly measure the current flowing through each of 3 resistors. Record these measurements in Table 2.2. 4. Use the following relationship to verify Kirchhoff’s current law: I    I 1 I 2 I 3 (2.5) Use the current divider rule to determine the current flowing through each of 3 resistors. Calculate the sum of the currents flowing through all 3 resistors. Does this calculated sum agree with the measured sum found in the previous step? Comment on the validity of Kirchhoff’s current law and the current divider rule based on your measurement results.
