1 Quiz 2 solutions are in order of the questions for version 1. (1). Correct answer is E As R decreases, the resistance of the rightmost branch decreases. This branch is in parallel to R 1 and the combination is then in series with r , so the effective resistance of the whole circuit goes down. This of course means that the current out of the battery goes up. Since we can use the leftmost loop to obtain V batt - rI = R 1 I 1 this immediately gives that I 1 must decrease. But since the total current went up, I 2 must clearly increase. (2). Correct answer is C Based on the electrical ratings, we can determine the resistances of the three lamps from either P = I 2 R or V 2 /R ; this gives R A = 24Ω, R B = 160Ω, R C = 240Ω. If we add bulbs B and C in parallel, we get an effective resistance of 96Ω, giving a total circuit resistance of 112Ω and a current through bulb A of 1.34A. This leads to a power consumption of 38W. (3). Correct answer is A
