WHiile discussing the circuit shown in Figure 15-63: Technician A says that the total resistance of the circuit is 1 ohm. Technician B says that the current flow through the 6-ohm resistor is 12 amps. Who is correct? Figure 15-63 Technician A Technician BBoth A and BNeither A nor B

To determine

The correct argument between the technicians

Explanation

Given:

Technician A says that the total resistance of the given circuit is 1 ohm.

Technicians B say that the current flow through the 6 ohm resistor is 12 amps.

Concept used:

Series circuits: When resistors are in series, then equivalent resistance is the algebraic sum of the individual resistances.

Req=R1+R2

Parallel circuits: When resistors are connected in parallel, then the reciprocal of equivalent resistance is equal to the algebraic sum of the reciprocals of individual resistances.

1Req=1R1+1R2

In parallel connections, the voltage remains the same.

And also, current i = vr

Where, v= voltage

r= resistance
