Please Show all steps, thank you!

Step 1

To find the voltages and current in the given circuit, equivalent resistance is required.

First 1Ω and 2Ω are in series connection, their equivalent is 1+2= 3Ω. (fig:a)

This 3Ω and 6Ω are in parallel, their equivalent is (3*6)/(3+6)=2Ω. (fig:b)

Now, 1Ω, 2Ω and 3Ω are in series, their equivalent is, R_{eq}= 1+2+3 = 6Ω. (fig:c)

Step 2

Using Ohm’s Law, find the total current in the circuit, i.e.,

Step 3

Cuurent in each resistance is required to know to find the voltage across each resistance.

From the circuit, given,

As the internal resistance 1Ω and external resistance 3Ω ar...
