PHYS208 Fundamentals of Physics II
Hint for Ch. 28, 55P
R2 and R3 are in parallel, assuming a "perfect" ammeter of 0 ohm
This parallel combination is then in series with R1 so that the circuit reduces
to a simple equivalent circuit from which the current through the emf
(and R1) may be calculated.
Finally, establish the voltage across the parallel combination and from that deduce the
current through the ammeter (and R3).
