How do I label the small current arrow to enter the resistor rather than leave it? I'm trying to make my diagram look like this.

enter image description here


\begin{circuitikz}[american voltages, american currents, european resistors] \draw
(0,0) to[I, l^=\mbox{$i_s=5mA$}] (0,3) -- (1.5,3)
  to[R=2K, i_=$i_1$] (1.5,0) -- (0,0)
(1.5,3) -- (4,3)
  to[R=3K, i_=$i_2$] (4,0) -- (1.5,0)

Mine shows up like this:

enter image description here

Also, can someone help me with the $v_s$? I'm very new to latex, so help is greatly appreciated!

Best regards,



Try like this:



\begin{circuitikz}[american voltages, american currents, american resistors] \draw
(0,0) to[I, l^=\mbox{$i_s=5mA$}] (0,3) 
(0,0)-- (1.5,0)
  to[R=2K, i^<=$i_1$] (1.5,3) -- (0,3)
(1.5,0) -- (4,0)
  to[R=3K, i^<=$i_2$] (4,3) -- (1.5,3)
\node at (2.5,1.5) {$v_s$};
\node at (2.5,2.75) {$+$};
\node at (2.5,0.25) {$-$};

I reversed almost everything... you can do it easier if you place resistors separate from other lines.


I don't really know if breaking a circuit to parts is a good practice for circuitikz

  • Thanks @CarLaTeX... I just show your edits too... but changed almost anything and looking to correct it again. Thanks... fixing... we was editing in the same time. – koleygr Sep 8 '17 at 3:45
  • Thanks... I have already fixed that (show it in your edit earlier)... I will edit again to manually add a $v_s$ and +/- if someone has better circuiticz knowledge please add an answer since I think there are better ways. – koleygr Sep 8 '17 at 3:51
