Two identical resistors of resistance R= 24 ohms and a variable resister Rsubscriptx are connected to an ideal batter of voltage V as shown in the figure. What should be the value of the variable resistance Rsubscriptx to make the boltage across it equal to V/5? Explain your reasoning and justify your work using the fundamental physics priniciples and definitions. I have attached a picture of the figure.

Great question... View the full answer

Total current flowing through the circuit(I) = V/(R+((RRx)/R+Rx)) (resistance across parallel connection R &amp; Rx = (RRx/R+Rx) Total current flowing through a circuit = Total voltage/Total...
