The due time is Central time. Adding a Resistor 28:03, trigonometry, numeric, > 1 min, nor- mal. 001 A loop circuit has a resistance o± R 1 and a cur- rent o± 2 A. The current is reduced to 1 . 6 A when an additional 3 Ω resistor is added in series with R 1 . What is the value o± R 1 ? Correct answer: 12 Ω. Explanation: Let : I 1 = 2 A , I 2 = 1 . 6 A , and R 2 = 3 Ω . Let the current with R 1 be I 1 and the cur- rent with additional resistance R 2 be I 2 . Then since the em± and the internal resistance o± the battery is a constant, we have I 1 R 1 = I 2 ( R 1 + R 2 ) I 1 R 1 = I 2 R 1 + I 2 R 2 R 1 = I 2 I 1 - I 2 R 2 = 1 . 6 A 2 A - 1 . 6 A (3 Ω) = 12 Ω . keywords: Serway CP 18 06 28:04, trigonometry, numeric, > 1 min, nor- mal. 002 Consider the circuit I 30 V S 18 Ω 9 Ω 6 Ω 12 Ω Find the equivalent resistance.
