For the circuit shown, if R1>R2 , then which of the following is true?

 


   

I2

I2=I1

I2>I1

You cannot tell from the information given.

 

A?

HINT:  For parallel circuit resistors .....(they all have the same voltage applied across them) the smaller the resistor, the larger the current

ops looks like A is imconplete sorry,

 

so it would then be  I 2 < I1 ?

R2 is the smaller and thus I2 will be the larger

R1 > R2  

 

Resistance of 1 is greater than Resistance of 2 

 

The higher the resistance, the more it resists the flow of current. 

 

So less current will be able to flow through the larger resistor. 

 

I2 > I1
