Solve: The rules for combining resistors in series and parallel lead to the sequences of equivalent circuits shown in Figure 19.52. In Figure 19.52c, This is the current through each of the resistors in Figure 19.52b. Figure 19.52 Note that is the voltage across and across so and is the voltage across and across so and 19.53. Set Up: For resistors in parallel, the voltages are the same and the currents add. so For resistors in series, the currents are the same and the voltages add. Solve: The rules for combining resistors in series and parallel lead to the sequence of equivalent circuits shown in Figure 19.53. In Figure 19.53c, In Figure 19.53b, the voltage across each resistor is 48.0 V, so and Note that Then in Figure 19.53a, and Figure 19.53 19.54. Set Up: We can use the power rating in to find the resistance of a bulb. Then we can find the voltage across each bulb when they are connected in series and in parallel. Solve: (a) The voltage across each bulb is (b) In parallel, the voltage across each bulb is 120 V and the power dissipated by each is 100 W. 19.55. Set Up: The power rating of each lightbulb is the power consumed if a voltage of 120 V is applied across

    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.
