Name: ________________________________________ Code # _________ Summer Session, 2008 ID: X 1 UCSD Physics 2B Practice Exam 3 Current & Resistance READ ME !!! Helpful Hints: Do this exam a few times. .. Once without the answers, Once after seeing the solutions & Once again with your formula sheet This is a good time to add formulas/constants to your sheet. Remember, this is a timed exam. .. work swiftly so you have time to check your answers. 1. A heating coil operates at 117 V. If it draws 10.5 Amps of current, find its resistance . A. 128 Ω B. 8.97 × 10 2 Ω C. 1.23 × 3 Ω D. 11.1 Ω 2. Two lamps each of resistance R = 10.0 Ω are connected in series to voltage source V = 120 V as shown in the diagram below. What is the current through each lamp? A. 6.00 A B. 12.0k A C. 130 A D. 83m A
