Solve: (a) Replacing series and parallel combinations of resistors by their equivalents gives the equivalent networks as shown in Figure 19.86. The equivalent resistance of the network is Figure 19.86 (b) The voltage across the resistor in Figure 19.86a is This is the voltage across the resistor in Figure 19.86b. The current through the resistor is 4.8 A. This is also the current through the resistor and the voltage across that resistor is 96.0 V. Therefore, the voltage between points x and y is This voltage is divided equally between the resistors in Figure 19.86b, so the voltage between points x and y is The voltmeter will read 57.6 V. 19.87. Set Up: Table 19.1 gives the resistivities of copper and aluminum to be and For the cables in series (end-to-end), For the cables in parallel the equivalent resistance is given by Note that in the two configurations the copper and aluminum sections have different lengths. And, for the parallel cables the cross sectional area of each cable is half what it is for the end to end configuration.

### What students are saying

• 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.
