Consider the circuit shown in the figure , in which three lights, each with a resistance , are connected in series. The circuit also contains an open switch. Part A When the switch is closed, does the intensity of light 2 increase, decrease, or stay the same? ANSWER: The intensity of light 2 increases. The intensity of light 2 decreases. The intensity of light 2 stays the same. Correct Part B Explain. ANSWER: My Answer: Part C Do the intensities of lights 1 and 3 increase, decrease, or stay the same? ANSWER: The intensities of lights 1 and 3 increase. The intensities of lights 1 and 3 decrease. The intensities of lights 1 and 3 stay the same. Correct Part D Explain. ANSWER: My Answer:
Problem 8.3 Part A A charged capacitor discharges through a resistor (call this discharging situation #1). If the value of the resistor is doubled and the identically charged capacitor is allowed to discharge again (situation #2), how do the time constants compare? ANSWER: Correct Problem 8.4

###### "Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
