Series Circuits Practice Problems
1. Given the series circuit below find the following unknown values.
Show all your work step-by step
|ITotal = 2 A||VTotal= ?||RTotal = ?|
|V1 = 2 V||R 1 = ?||V2 =|
|R2 = 10 Î©||I1 = ?||I2 = ?|
2. Calculate the total power used by the above circuit
3. Add a third resistor in series to the above circuit.
The value of this resistor is R3 = 10 ohms.
The value of the current stays the same (ITotal = 2 A).
Recalculate all the values in the table above and the value of V3 and I3.
