SCEN103 SCEN103 3/10 Quiz 1

For full credit, work must be shown, including formulas used and algebraic and numerical steps. Answers must include units.

In the circuit shown below, the battery supplies 1.5 V.
The resistors from left to right are R1 = 15 ohm, R2 = 10 ohm, R3 = 5 ohm,

  1. What is the current flowing througth the 10 ohm resistor?

     

     

  2. What is the voltage across the 15 ohm resistor?

     

    -- the power dissipated by it?

     

     

  3. What is the voltage across the 5 ohm resistor?

     

    -- the power dissipated by it?
