Solution to Frame 62

Now let us look at resistance. In the parallel circuit below,

a. Series

resistance 1 (R1) is 15Ω; R2 is ______Ω; and R3 is

b. Parallel

_______Ω.

c. Series

d. Parallel

Solution to Frame 63

10

20

______Ω.

Solution to Frame 64

5

Rt will be less than 10Ω in the circuit below. Rt is always

(more/less) than the smallest resistance.

Solution to Frame 65

So far you have learned that:

less

a. A parallel circuit has (only one/more than one) path for

current flow.

b. Rt is (more/less) than the (largest/smallest) resistance in

a parallel circuit.
