Answer to Question #6455 in Electric Circuits for Fainah
The 14 and 16 ohm are in series, so let's add them up.
That sum, 30 ohm, is in parallel with the 23 ohm.
The equivalent resistance is the product divided by the sum, or 690 / 53 ohm, or about 13.02 ohms.
Now we can apply the Ohms law:
I = U/R = 120/13.02 = 9.21 A.
