Two equal resistances R\(_{1}\) = R\(_{2}\)= R are connected with a 30 \(\Omega\) resistor and a battery of terminal voltage V. The currents in the two branches are 2.25 A and 1.5 A as shown in the figure. Then, what will happen? Please explain the answer in brief.
R\(_{2}\)= 15\(\Omega\)
R\(_{2}\) = 30\(\Omega\)
V = 36 V
V = 180 V

Click Here to Post AnswerAnswer A. R2 = 15 Ohm
Total Current is 2.25 A.
The current through the 30 ohm resister is 1.5 A.
Hence Current through the R2 should be equal to 0.75 A (2.25-1.5 = 0.75 A)
If R2 is taken as Unknown, Then R2 is given by,
By Current didsion method, 1.5 = 2.25 x 30 / (30+R2)
...[ + ]
Since, total current in the circuit is constant, we get 2.25R = 0.75R + 1.5*30 .
Or, 1.5R = 1.5*30 .
Hence, R = 30 ohm Ans. (option B)
