  • CHAPTER 1 DC REVIEW AND PRETEST24THE CURRENT DIVIDER27  In the circuit shown in Figure 1.9, the current splits or divides between the two resistors that are connected in parallel.+−I1R2R1I2ITITVSFIGURE 1.9IT splits into the individual currents I1 and I2, and then these recombine to form IT.QUESTIONSWhich of the following relationships are valid for this circuit? A. VS 5 R1I1B. VS 5 R2I2C. R1I1 5 R2I2D. I1/I2 5 R2/R1ANSWERSAll of them are valid.28  When solving current divider problems, follow these steps: 1.
