## Solve the parallel circuit for total circuit resistance, total circuit amperage, and the amperage through each leg (Figure 15-62).

Expert Solution
To determine

The solutions of the given parallel circuit.

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

Concept used:

Parallel circuits: When resistors are connected in parallel, the reciprocal of equivalent resistance is equal to the algebraic sum of the reciprocals of individual resistances.

1Req=1R1+1R2

Calculation:

The total circuit resistance of the circuit is,

1Req=1R1+1R2+1R3

Or, 1Req=16+13+12

Or, 1Req=1+2+36

Or, 1Req=<
