Unformatted text preview: = V P i i = 0.833 A Q27.02. a) Series b) Parallel c) Parallel Q27.07. The smallest resistance will draw the largest current. Therefore, we must order the resistances. Since R 1 > R 2 , R 2 will draw more current than R 1 . When in series, the resistance will be R 1 + R 2 > R 1 . Therefore, when in series, the combination will draw less current than R 1 . When in parallel, the resistance will be, R R R R R R R R 1 2 1 2 2 2 1 2 1 + = + < ( / ) , so the parallel combination will draw more current than R 2 . Therefore the order according to current drawn, from highest to lowest will be: parallel , R 2 , R 1 , series ....
