**Calculate the equivalent resistance**

To get equivalent resistance (RT) in series, add all resistances in series. RT = 4Ω + 8Ω + 12Ω = 24 Ω 4Ω 8Ω 12Ω 24V 24Ω 24V

**Calculate the current in the circuit**

To calculate the current, use V=IR 𝐼= 𝑉 𝑅 = 24𝑉 24Ω =1𝐴 24Ω 24V I = 1A

5
**What is the current in each resistor? **

Since there are no branches to split the current, the current has to go through all of them. So the current is 1A 4Ω 8Ω 12Ω 24V I = 1A

**What is the voltage drop across each resistor?**

To calculate the voltage drop, use V=IR 4Ω 8Ω 12Ω 24V V4Ω = (1A)(4Ω) = 4V V8Ω = (1A)(8Ω) = 8V V12Ω = (1A)(12Ω) = 12V I = 1A Notice how all the voltage drops add up to the voltage of the battery. 4V+8V+12V=24V

To get equivalent resistance in a parallel circuit, use the following equation: 1 𝑅 𝑇 = 1 𝑅 𝑅 𝑅 3 … 1 𝑅 𝑇 = 1 4Ω + 1 8Ω Ω = 6 24Ω Ω Ω = 11 24Ω 1 𝑅 𝑇 = 11 24Ω 𝑅 𝑇 = 24Ω 11 =𝟐.𝟐𝜴 Invert both sides 24V 2.2Ω
