# Simple electric circuit using circuitikz

I am looking for a simple code that describes a simple circuit with a battery and two resistors(2,2 ohm and 4,7 ohm) and a voltmeter for the two resitors, can anyone help me?

\begin{figure}[h!]
\begin{centering}
\begin{circuitikz}
\draw (0,0) to[battery1] (0,5) to[short] (2,5) to[R=$R_1$] (2,3) to[voltmeter](2,3) -- (5,3) to [R=$R_2$](2,2) to[short] (2,0) to[short](0,0);
\end{circuitikz}
\caption{Elektrischemetingen (stroom)}
\end{centering}
\end{figure}

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you by providing a minimal code example of what you've tried so far (MWE). While the documentation is quite demanding you will find many examples on this site to start with. Commented Oct 27, 2018 at 20:13
• Yes I already looked but I dont get the system with the coordinates, I already searched but didn't find anything I realy understand. Commented Oct 27, 2018 at 20:19

• \begin{figure}[h!] \begin{centering} \begin{circuitikz} \draw (0,0) to[battery1] (0,5) to[short] (2,5) to[R=$R_1$] (2,3) to[voltmeter](2,3) -- (5,3) to [R=$R_2$](2,2) to[short] (2,0) to[short](0,0); \end{circuitikz} \caption{Elektrischemetingen (stroom)} \end{centering} \end{figure} Commented Oct 27, 2018 at 20:20
• You should've edited your question to include the code there (as I did now). \centering is not an environment, so it should be \begin{figure}\centering... not \begin{figure}\begin{centering}.... Also a minimal code example should be compilable, so start with \documentclass and end with \end{document}, loading the necessary packages you'll need. Commented Oct 27, 2018 at 20:24

\documentclass[border=2mm]{standalone}

\usepackage{circuitikz}

\begin{document}
\begin{circuitikz}
\draw (0,0) coordinate(a) to[battery1] (0,4) to[short] ++(2,0)
coordinate(b) to[R=$R_1$] ++(0,-2) coordinate(c) to[R=$R_2$] (c|-a)
to[short] (a);
\draw (b) to[short,*-] ++(2,0) coordinate(e) to[voltmeter] (e|-c)
to[short,*-*] (c);
\draw (e|-c) to[voltmeter] (e|-a) to[short,-*] (c|-a);
\end{circuitikz}
