I'd like to understand this simple schematic to see if I get things clearly
If I understand things correctly:
- when the switch is open, the current at the right black point is zero, the voltage is 12V.
- when the switch is closed, the current at the right black point is 20 mA, the voltage is 0V
If this is correct, suppose now a similar schema with the following difference: between the switch and ground I have another 600 ohm resistor.
- the potential at the black dot with the closed switch is now 6 V ?
- any point along the horizontal connection between the T junction and the black dot are at the same potential. I guess they also enjoy the same current. If two points in a circuit experience the same potential and they are directly connected, do they always experience the same current as well ?
