Two bulbs are connected in parallel across a source of emf EMF = 10.0V with a negligible internal resistance. One bulb has a resistance of 3.0 Omega , and the other is 2.5 Omega . A resistor R is connected in the circuit in series with the two bulbs.
What is the current through each individual bulb? Let I1 be the current through the bulb of resistance 3.0 Omega and I2 the current through the bulb of resistance 2.5 Omega?
