PHYS-1200 PHYSICS II SPRING 2005 Post Quiz 5 Name____ ANSWERS _______________________ Consider the figure below. It shows an ideal battery in series with a light bulb. Light bulb 1. The light bulb has a resistance of 25 Ohms and the voltage is 12 Volts. a) What is the current at point A? i = E / R = 8 V/25 i A = 0.48 A units b) What is the current at point B? The current is the same throughout the circuit. i B = 0.48 A units 2. The potential is taken to be 0.0V at the negative terminal of the battery.
