Calculate the potential di/erence between points a and b in Figure P 28 : 43 and identify which point is at the higher potential. 7. A voltage source supplies a current I to a parallel combination of resistances R 1 and R 2 . (a) Show that I 1 = IR 2 R 1 + R 2 ; I 2 = IR 1 R 1 + R 2 are the currents in the respective resistors. (b) A copper wire of radius : 250 mm has an aluminum jacket of outer radius : 380 mm . There is a 2 : 00-A current in the composite wire. Calculate the current in each material. In order to calcu-late the necessary resistances, make use of the Table 27 : 2 entitled Resistivities and Temperature Coe¢ cients of Resistivity for Various Materials . 1...

    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.
