R2 R1 V Calculation Calculation In the circuit shown: V = 18V, R1 = 1Ω, R3 R2 = 2Ω, R3 = 3Ω, and R4 = 4Ω. What is V2, the voltage across R2? R4 • Combine Resistances: R2 and R4 are connected: (A) in series (B) in parallel (C) neither in series nor in parallel Series Combination Ra Rb Series : Every loop with resistor 1 also has resistor 2. BB R2 R1 V Calculation Calculation In the circuit shown: V = 18V, R1 = 1Ω, R3 What is V2, the voltage across R2? R4 • Combine Resistances: R2 = 2Ω, R3 = 3Ω, and R4 = 4Ω. R2 and R4 are connected in series = R24 = 2 + 4 = 6 Ω Redraw the circuit using the equivalent resistor R24 = series combination of R2 and R4.
