Each of the four circuits in the drawing consists of a single resistor whose resistance is either R or 2R, and a single battery whose voltage is either V or 2V. The unit of voltage in each circuit is V = 10 V and the unit of resistance is R = 8 Ω. Determine (a) the power supplied to each resistor and (b) the current delivered to each resistor.

You say each circuit has one resistor.

(a) The power in that resistor is

P = V^2/R

(b) The current in the resistor is

I = V/R

V is either 10 or 20 volts, depending upon the circuit.

R is either 8 or 16 Ù, depending upon the circuit.
