Textbook Problem

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

  1. Technician A

  • Technician B
  • Both A and B
  • Neither 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
