(c) Reflect: I increases when R decreases. R decreases when L decreases or d increases. 19.26. Set Up: so and 19.27. Set Up: When the switch is open there is no current and the terminal voltage of the battery equals its emf, When the switch is closed, current I flows and the terminal voltage V of the battery is The current I is the same at all points of the circuit. Solve: with and so and Reflect: When current flows through the battery, the terminal voltage is less than the emf because of the voltage across the internal resistance. 19.28. Set Up: When the switch is open, there is no current. The voltmeter reads the voltage across the circuit element it is connected across. The emf of the battery is 12.0 V. Solve: (a) so the terminal voltage of the battery equals the emf. The voltmeter reads 12.0 V. (b) so the voltage across the resistor is zero. The voltmeter reads zero. (c) The sum of the potential changes around the circuit must be zero, so if there is a potential rise of 12.0 V across the battery, there must be a potential drop of 12.0 V across the switch. The voltmeter reads 12.0 V.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
