Current in Two Simple Loops

EANDM-AJ$KEN

Consider the accompanying circuit diagram. A battery is connected to two $5\Omega$ resistors as shown.

If a current is flowing out of the battery as shown with a value of $1\,A$, what is the value of the voltage ($V=V_{bat}$) on the battery?

A

The voltage is $5\,V$.

B

The voltage is $2.5\,V$.

C

There is not enough information to determine the voltage on the battery because the current splits into two directions

D

The voltage is $10\,V$.

E

The voltage is $1\,V$.
