Lesson: Series Circuits High School PhysicsPhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the potential difference, current, and resistance at different points within simple series circuits.
Sample Question Videos
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?
