Determine the voltage drop (from top to bottom) across the 16 ohm resistor in the circuit shown. Determine the voltage drop across the 4 ohm resistor. What is the voltage V?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 6:16 pm ad1c9bdddf
1) Since 16Ohm and 8Ohm are series, according to Ohm's law, the voltage drop on 16Ohm is
2) Similarly, the voltage drop on 4Ohm is 12*(4/(4+8))=4V
3) We ...
This complete solution includes calculations, answers and a brief explanation of voltage drop in the resistor. It uses the concepts of Ohm's Law and electric potential.
