In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the potential difference, current, and resistance at different points within simple series circuits.

Q1:

The circuit in the diagram consists of two resistors in series. What is the total resistance of the two resistors?

Q2:

A student sets up the circuit shown in the diagram. If the value of π is 3 Ξ©, what is the current through the circuit?

Q3:

The circuit shown in the diagram consists of three resistors connected in series with a cell. The first resistor has a resistance of π , the second resistor has a resistance of 2 π , and the third resistor has a resistance of 3 π . The cell provides a potential difference of 24 V. The current through the circuit is 0.1 A. What is the value of π ?
