    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 ...

    Solution Summary

    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.
