PHYS345 Electricity and Electronics

Concept: Current Sources

3 resistor circuit

The circuit above has 3 identical resistors and an ideal current source.
Before the switch is closed, resistors 1 and 2 have identical currents and voltages.

After the switch is closed, does the voltage across the current source increase or decrease?
