What is V2, the voltage across R2? • Conceptual Analysis: – – Ohm’s Law: when current I flows through resistance R, the potential drop V is given by: V = IR. Resistances are combined in series and parallel combinations • Rseries = Ra + Rb • (1/Rparallel) = (1/Ra) + (1/Rb) • Strategic Analysis – – – Combine resistances to form equivalent resistances Evaluate voltages or currents from Ohm’s Law Expand circuit back using knowledge of voltages and currents R2 R1 V Calculation Calculation In the circuit shown: V = 18V, R1 = 1Ω, R3 R4 R2 = 2Ω, R3 = 3Ω, and R4 = 4Ω. BB What is V2, the voltage across R2? • Combine Resistances: R1 and R2 are connected: (A) in series (B) in parallel (C) neither in series nor in pa...
