The current divider rule is used to calculate the divided current that flows through the parallel resistors. Today you'll learn the application of current divider in five parallel resistor circuit.

One can see that application of CDR in 5 parallel resistors follows two steps:

One can see that application of CDR in 5 parallel resistors follows two steps:

- Find the equivalent resistance of the circuit.
- Apply the general formula to individual resistors.

Let's solve an example to better understand this.
