Here $R1 = 2 \Omega$, $R2= 4 \Omega$ and $R3= 4 \Omega$
Though there looks to be a short circuit in this diagram, my teachers say that this circuit can easily be redrawn into simple parallel circuit. As far as I know a short circuit is an alternate way for current to move where there is no resistance whatsoever. So all of the current will flow through a short circuit if found.
Here if the current flows through that part of the wire ACB then after that R2 and R3 being the same it will get confused which way to go and even if it goes both sides then some part of the current is bouncing back and moving from the negative side of the cell to the positive. This is just a conjecture.
So can anyone please describe why there is no short circuit in the circuit though it seems to be? And also how to understand by looking at any circuit that there is actually no short circuit though there seems to be one.
