Q. 1 B4.4( 14 Votes )

# Two resistances are connected in series as shown in the diagram:(i) What is the current through the 5 ohm resistance?(ii) What is the current through R?(iii) What is the value of R?(iv) What is the value of V?

(i) Current through 5 ohm resistor

I= V/R

I = 10/5 = 2A

(ii) Two resistances are connected in series. So same current flow through the circuit,

So current flowing through R =2A

(iii) As we know that according to ohm's law

V=IR

So R= V/I = 6/2 = 3 ohm

(iv) Total V in the given circuit = V1+V2 = 10+6= 16 V
