### Why doesn't KVL work for the bottom loop?

I was doing a practice problem. I calculated the correct value for i_a = -2.4 A. But I used KVL on the bottom loop to get R, and got the inverse of the answer that I actually needed. My equation was -...

### Two 10ampere switch instead of one 16 ampere

I want to use two 10 ampere switchs for my 16amp appliance.What I will do is divide the input wire of the appliance into two,pass it from two individual 10 ampere switch and then recombine them and ...

### Superposition principle with current divider

Can somebody explain to me how can I use a current divider in a linear circuit with two current sources? I understand that the given source is linear, so we need to apply the superposition principle. ...

### Can I use a current divider to protect my IC?

I designed an oscillator circuit using a TLC555 timer IC to create a 2 second pulse, which is used to drive a 12V 6W solenoid via a relay. Both the IC and the solenoid are run off of 12V, but every ...

### Why (physically) does a current divider circuit show that both resistors have an effect on individual current?

I understand both the current divider formula and why it is mathematically correct. I am curious though why physically this is true. My book provided me the following circuit: simulate this circuit &...
