Resistors of 5 ohms and 10 ohms are connected in series with a battery supplying 3 volts.

What is the total resistance ?

What is the total resistance ?

Expert's answer

Since the resistors are connected in series, the total resistance R is equal to R_1+R_2 (for this case). According to the condition of problem R_1=5 ohms, R_2=10 ohms. Hence

R=5+10=15 ohms.

R=5+10=15 ohms.
