In the first circuit, I1 = I2 because there is only one resistor as the component in the circuit.
For the second circuit, I3 = I1 = I2
The figure shows two circuits. The two batteries are identical and the four resistors all have exactly the same resistance. Rank in order the five currents, I1 to I2.
