Four identical resistors are placed in series in a circuit. The resistance of all four resistors together is 36 Ω. What is the resistance of each resistor individually?
A battery supplying 12 V is connected in series with two resistors. The potential difference across the first resistor is 4 V. What is the potential difference across the second resistor?
Three identical resistors are connected in series in a circuit. A voltmeter is used to measure the potential difference across all three of them, and it is found to be 18 V. What is the potential difference across each resistor individually?
