WHILE APPLYING KIRCHOFFS LAWS ,HOW CAN WE DISTRIBUTE THE CURRENTS TO DIFFERENT BRANCHES IN THE CIRCUIT FROM THE POSITIVE TERMINAL OF THE BATTERY.ARE THERE ANY ASSUMPTIONS THAT WE MAKE HERE?

KirchoffÂ’s Current Law is based upon our assumption that chargescannot accumulate at a node. KirchoffÂ’s Current Law (commonly abbreviated in these chapters as KCL) states: The algebraic sum of all currents entering (or leaving) a node is zero.The sum of the currents entering any node equals the sum of the currents leaving the node.

A cell of emf E and internal resistance r is connected to two external resistance R1 and R2 and a perfect ammeter.The current in the circuit is measured in four different situation: (i)without any external resistance in the circuit (ii)with resistance R1 only (iii)with Ri and R2 in series combination (iv)with R1 and R2 in parallel combination The currents measured in the four cases are 0.42A,1.05A,1.4A and 4.2A,but not necessarily in that order.Identify the currents corresponding to the four cases mentioned above.
