There are two electric circuits.
- Resistor 1 ($R_1$) connected with resistor 2 ($R_2$) by series circuit
- $R_1$ connected with $R_2$ in parallel
Each of the circuit has battery with emf and the internal resistance $r$. The ammeter is connected to the circuit before the junction. The voltmeter is connected to the circuit by bestride both resistances.
The ammeter in circuit one reads $I_1$, voltmeter reads $V_1$. The ammeter in circuit 2 reads $I_2$, voltmeter reads $V_2$. The question ask to compare between $V_1$ and $V_2$, $I_1$ and $I_2$.
I think the answer should be $V_1$ is lesser than $V_2$ and $I_1$ lesser than $I_2$, because $\Delta V= Ir+E$ ,so $V$ depends on $I$. But the solution is $V_1$ more than $V_2$. Do I understand something wrong?
