Question 4
Question
Calculate the resistance of a metal wire when a voltage of 8 V across it causes a current of 2 A to flow through it.
Answer
4 ohms
16 ohms
0.25 ohms
Question 5
Question
What formula do you use for calculating resistors in parallel?
Answer
R = R₁ + R₂
1/R = 1/R₁ + 1/R₂
V = V₁ + V₂
R₁/R₂ = R₃/R₄
