Answer :

When two resistors are connected in series, their resultant resistance is given by

R= R1+R2

Here R1 = 2 ohm

R2= 3 ohm

Combined resistance, R = R1 + R2 = 2+3 = 5 ohm

(b) We know that the current, I= V/R

Here R = 5 ohm

V= 10V

I = 10/5 = 2 amp

(c) Potential difference across 2ohm resistor V= I x R1= 2×2=4V

(d) Potential difference across 3ohm resistor V= I x R2= 2×3=6V
