I have a series circuit with voltage source and 2 resistors. very simple circuit.

Given:

Vsource=24V

Power=48mW

Found:

Itot=P/V=2mA

Req=V/I=R1+R2=12Kohms

Still need to find individual values for R1, R2, V1, and V2.

Relevant equations:

P=IV=I^2R=V^2/R

V1=I*R1

V2=I*R2

Vs=V1+V2

V=IR

I=V/R

R=V/I

R1=V1/I

R2=V2/I

Voltage Divides.

Current is constant.

The problem before this one was a parallel circuit the same way. I found all those values after an hour of crunching. I'm trying to apply the same thinking to this one, but I feel I may be overthinking it.

I have been on this for hours, running in circles.

I have tried to manipulate the Power and Ohms Law equations every way possible to solve a system. But, it seems what I am trying to solve for always cancels out, or I end with up 1. But, I believe this would be a system with 4 unknowns, 4 equations?

Does that seem correct? Any help would be absolutely appreciated. I do not like circuits, but am trying to understand and apply the concepts.

Thanks!
