Physics 8B 7 – DC Circuits rev 4.0 7 – DC Circuits 1. Two resistors, R 1 =6 Ω and R 2 = 12 Ω , are connected to a battery, ε = 10 V. If the resistors are connected in series a) Q: Sketch this arrangement. b) Q: What is the relationship between I 1 , I 2 , and I tot ? c) Q: What is the relationship between V 1 , V 2 , and V tot ? d) Q: What is the relationship between P 1 , P 2 , and P tot ? e) P: Verify d) with calculations. f) Repeat a) – e) if the resistors are connected in parallel.

7 – DC Circuits rev 4.0 3. You are given a battery pack that provides a 12 V difference between its terminals. The battery pack has a build in safety fuse so that if the current exceeds 10 A, the fuse will blow, creating an open circuit. You are also given a box of twelve light bulbs each with a resistance of 10 Ω . a) P: What is the most bulbs you can hook up in series to the battery pack without blowing the fuse? b) P: What is the most bulbs you can hook up in parallel to the battery pack without blowing the fuse? c) P: Which arrangement, your answer to a) or your answer to b), will be the quickest to result in a dead battery? d)
