How is the net resistance lesser than the least resistance when resistances are connected in parallel? The electrons will have to flow through one of the resistances, right? To me, it seems like the net resistance should be equal to the least resistance. Can someone please explain intuitively? (I know how the formula works)

A submarine of mass m is travelling at max power and has engines that deliver a force F at max power to the submarine. The water exerts a resistance force proportional to the square of the submarine's speed v.

The submarine increases its speed from ${v}_{1}$ to ${v}_{2}$, show that the distance travelled in this period is $\frac{m}{2k}\mathrm{ln}\frac{F-k{v}_{1}^{2}}{F-k{v}_{2}^{2}}$ where k is a constant.

I've found $\frac{dv}{dt}=\frac{1}{m}(F-k{v}^{2})$ using $\sum F=ma$ but I am struggling to progress further using integration or the fact that $\frac{dv}{dt}=v\frac{dv}{dx}=\frac{d}{dx}(\frac{1}{2}{v}^{2})=\frac{{d}^{2}x}{d{t}^{2}}$ which is how I've been taught to solve resisted motion questions.

An oil pump is drawing 44 kW of electric power while pumping oil with ρ= 860 kg/m^3 at a rate of 0.1 m^3/s. The inlet and outlet diameters of the piper are 8 cm and 12 cm, respectively. If the pressure rise of oil in the pump is measured to be 500 kPa and the motor efficiency is 90 percent, determine the mechanical efficiency of the pump.

Answer the following T/F questions based on the behavior of the circuit in the above Figure 5:

(1) A transient current flows for a short time after the RELAY is switched to either the N.O.("normally open") or N.C. ("normally closed") position.

(2)The transient currents that flow in this experiment decays exponentially to zero.

(3)The capacitor charge Q exponentially decays to zero when the RELAY is thrown to position N.O.

(4)When the current I is positive, the capacitor charge Q is decreasing.

(5)When the current I is positive, the measured VOLTAGE IN 2 will be negative.

(6)When the capacitor charge Q is positive, the measured VOLTAGE IN 1 is positive.

(7)The quantity t1/2=? ln 2 is called the half-life of an exponential decay, where ?=RC is the time constant in an RC circuit. The current in a discharging RC circuit drops by half whenever t increases by $t}_{\frac{1}{2}$. For a circuit with R=2 k? and C=3 ?F, if the current is 6 am at t=5 ms, at what time (in ms) will the current be 3 mA?

A person who starting from rest at the top of a cliff swings down at the end of a rope,releases it, and falls into the water below. There are two paths bywhich the person can enter the water. Suppose he enters the waterat a speed of 13 m/s via path 1. How fast is he moving on path 2 when he releases the rope at a height of 5.20 m above the water? Ignore the effects of air resistance.

The practical use of the electric current problems is met basically everywhere even if you are not majoring in Engineering. Take an example of data programming and the use of safety (data transfer) questions when the data is being transferred from place to place via cloud storage solutions. The same is related to automation and logistics where the electric current equation will help to calculate the limitations and the available resources. See some answers to the questions dealing with the electricity principles to get a better idea of how it works and compare the existing solutions to your task objectives!
