Question: A series circuit has a 6 volt power source, and three 15 ohm resistors. What is the current?

0 Points

We can find out the current using ohm’s law, which states that current (I) is equivalent to voltage (V) divided by resistance (R). In a series circuit, by definition, all resistors are set up in a chain, therefore, the total resistance is given by the sum of all the resistors. Here we have three 15 ohm resistors, so the total resistance would be 3*15 = 45 ohms. With a 6 volt power source, applying Ohm's law: I = V/R = 6V/45Ω = 0.133 Amps (rounded to three decimal places). So the current that is flowing in the circuit is approximately 0.133 Amps.
