I= 41. SSM REASONING Using Ohm's law (Equation 20.2) we can write an expression for the voltage across the original circuit as V = I 0 R0 . When the additional resistor R is inserted in
series, assuming that the battery remains the same, the voltage across the new combination is
given by V = I ( R + R0 ) . Since V is the same in both cases, we can write I 0 R0 = I ( R + R0 ) .
This expression can be solved for R0 . SOLUTION Solving for R0 , we have
I 0 R0 – IR0 = IR R0 ( I 0 – I ) = IR or Therefore, we find that IR

R0 = 42. REASONING According to Equation 20.2, the resistance R of the resistor is equal to the
voltage VR across it divided by the current I, or R = VR /I . Since the resistor, the lamp, and
the voltage source are in series, the voltage across the resistor is VR = 120.0 V − VL, where
VL is the voltage across the lamp. Thus, the resistance is
R= 120.0 V − VL
I Since VL is known, we need only determine the current in the circuit. Since we know the
voltage VL across the lamp and the power P dissipated by it, we can use Equation 20.6a to
find the current: I = P / VL . The resistance can be written as Chapter 20 Problems R= 1079 120.0 V − VL

the three resistors. The potential difference V can be determined from Ohm's law according
to V = IRs .

a. The equivalent resistance is
Rs = 25 Ω + 45 Ω + 75 Ω = 145 Ω b. The potential difference across the three resistors is
V = IRs = (0.51 A)(145 Ω) = 74 V ______________________________________________________________________________
44. REASONING Ohm’s law relates the resistance R of either resistor to the current I in it and
the voltage V across it:
R= V
I (20.2) Because the two resistors are in series, they must have the same current I. We will,
therefore, apply Equation 20.2 to the 86Ω resistor to determine the current I. Following
that, we will use Equation 20.2 again, to obtain the potential difference across the 67Ω
resistor. SOLUTION Let R1 = 86 Ω be the resistance of the first resistor, which has a potential
difference of V1 = 27 V across it. The current I in this resistor, from Equation 20.2, is I= V1
R1 (1) 1080 ELECTRIC CIRCUITS Let R2 = 67 Ω be the resistance of the second resistor. Again employing Equation 20.2, the
potential difference V2 across this resistor is given by
V2 = IR2 (2) Since the current in both resistors is the same, substituting Equation (1) into Equation (2)
yields
V ( 27 V ) 67 Ω = 21 V

45. REASONING Since the two resistors are connected in series, they are equivalent to a
single equivalent resistance that is the sum of the two resistances, according to
Equation 20.16. Ohm’s law (Equation 20.2) can be applied with this equivalent resistance
to give the battery voltage.
SOLUTION According to Ohm’s law, we find V = IRs = I ( R1 + R2 ) = ( 0.12 A )( 47 Ω + 28 Ω ) = 9.0 V

(Equation 20.6b), where I is the current in the circuit. The power is known, and the current
can be obtained from Ohm’s law as the voltage V of the source divided by the equivalent
resistance RS of the series circuit: I = V / RS . Since the two resistors are wired in series, the
equivalent resistance is the sum of the resistances, or RS = R1 + R2 .
