Expert Solution
To determine

The correct hypothecation about voltage drop.

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

Technician A says that voltage drop in a closed circuit must equal source voltage.

Technician B says that voltage drop can be calculated by multiplying circuit voltage times the load resistance.

Concept used:

According to Kirchhoff’s law of conservation of energy, in a closed loop circuit, the sum of all the voltage in a circuit is equivalent to zero.

In a closed loop circuit, a voltage is supplied at a point...
