    Yes it is

    Because,
    the sum of the capacities of the arcs on the minimal cut equals the maximum flow is a famous theorem of network theory called the max flow min cut theorem

    for example

    Let minimal cuts of arcs in s-t flow are ...

    Solution Summary

    This verifies a statement regarding edge capacities and maximum flow.
