Q. 6

# Two resistors, wi

Answer :

(i) For obtaining minimum current, the two resistors should be connected in parallel.

(ii) For obtaining maximum current, the two resistors should be connected in series.

(a) R1= 5 ohm, R2= 10 ohm and V = 6 V

For parallel combination  R= 10/3 ohm

Total current in the circuit For series combination

R=R1+R2

R=5+10=15 ohm

Total current in the circuit. (b) So the current in each case is 1.8 A and 0.4A in parallel and series circuit respectively.
