Answer :

1.6A, 4A


Current through A1 ammeter, i-i1= 2.4A

Formula used:

Depending on the resistance offered by each paths of a circuit, the current split inversely. The voltage across the two branches will be same as they are connected parallel.


The current going through Ammeter A3 will split into two. To find the current in two branches, let’s equate the voltage in each branches.


By substituting the value of i-i1= 2.4A, we get i1 that goes through ammeter A2 as,

Hence the total current i, passing through A3

Hence the current through A2 and A3 are 1.6A and 4A.
