current is the same
through all elements
Itot = I1 = I2
V = V1 + V2
R = R 1 + R2
V1 = Itot R1 = R1/Rtot V
V2 = Itot R2 = R2/Rtot V R1

V = V1 = V2
Itot = I1 + I2
1/R = 1/R1 + 1/R2
I1 = V / R1
I2 = V / R2 V R1 R2 Electric Power and Energy
Electric potential Energy:
PE = Q V
Using the definition of current I = Q/t
the definition of current
Q/t
(Electric) Energy = VIt Power = Energy transformed
time PE = V Q
P=

Power lost in a wire: PLost = RI2
lost in wire:
RI
Energy = Power x Time = VIt [kWh] 4Resistor Circuit
