Using a parallel circuit you are able to divide currents in a circuit. This is used in electronics, but also in electrical engineering.

Quite analogous to the voltage divider,
which you had obtained from a series circuit of resistors,
can you use the **parallel circuit** to divide currents.

By changing resistors with different resistances values in a parallel circuit,
you can divide the current in any
In the shown circuit flows a -
Through the resistor
**R1 (2.2 kΩ)**flows a current of**4 mA**. -
Through the resistor
**R2 (1 kΩ)**flows a current of**9 mA**.
Power dividers are widely used in |

But enough about the properties of resistors...
