I know how voltage and current are usually calculated in a parallel circuit. However, what if the power sources output differing amounts of voltage/current? Like in this circuit below: I have two batteries - one outputs 10v/3A and the other outputs 3v/0.5A. The two power sources are connected in parallel and are powering a light bulb. The diodes are there to prevent the electricity from going where it shouldn't. I know this schematic lacks a lot of detail and ***that is on purpose***. I want to understand the ***concept***. So, let's just say the light bulb can take whatever voltage and amperage and that the diodes don't take any power.
