Two cells of 3V each are connected in parallel. An external resistance of 0.5 Ω is connected is series to the junction of two parallel resistors of 4 Ω and 2Ω and then to common terminal of battery through each resistor as shown in figure. What is the current flowing through 4Ω resistor?
A. 0.25 A
C. 0.35 A
The given circuit can be reduced to : -
The equivalent resistance can be calculated as: -
Req= + 0.5 = Ω
Req = Ω
The net current in the circuit is given as
= A, so,
Inet = 18/11 A.
The circuit can be drawn as shown aside,
The voltage drop across the parallel resistance combination is , so net current in the 4 Ω resistor is = 0.55 A .
