## Answers ( )

1. Answer:

(a) The equivalent resistance is 18.06 Ω

(b) The current in each resistor is 0.665 A

Explanation:

Given;

first resistor, R₁ = 2.25 Ω

second resistor, R₂ = 5.90 Ω

third resistor, R₃ = 9.91 Ω

Equivalent resistance;

2.25 Ω +  5.90 Ω + 9.91 Ω

18.06 Ω

The current in each resistor;

For series connection, current is the same in every resistor.

V = I(R₁ + R₂ + R₃)
