Because R4 is the final circuit which closes the loop.

But applying kvl gives different answer.

1st convert G into R and 0.02A pass through R1 and current increases as resistance, so high current pass through R4.

What is G here ?

Sundar said:   1 decade ago
I hope G is a Galvanometer here.

A galvanometer is a type of ammeter: an instrument for detecting and measuring electric current.

Anita said:   1 decade ago
g is conductance

Abirami said:   1 decade ago
Anitha is right. G stands for conductance.

Ritika said:   1 decade ago
Please elaborate.

Current is always passes through the small resistance. Aaccording to the kvl the r4 having high resistance than r3+2400g.

So the final answer is the r4. and here g stands for conductance. i.e 1/R.

G is galvanometer and it measure current. 2.4 A is in the next G so no current through the R1. Similarly, no current through R2, R3 and finally whole current through R4. So R4 is short circuited and others are open circuit.
