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 19.52Note thatis the voltage acrossand acrosssoandis the voltage acrossand acrosssoand19.53.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 19.5319.54.Set Up:We can use the power rating in to find the resistance of a bulb. Then we can find thevoltage 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
