A 16.0 ohm and a 24.0 ohm resistor are connected in parallel. A difference in potential of 32.0 V is applied to the combination.

What is the equivalent resistance of the parallel circuit?

What is the total current in the circuit?

  • physics -

    Compute the equivalent resistance R with the equation
    1/R = 1/R1 + 1/R2,
    which can be rearranged to give
    R = R1 R2/(R1 + R2)

    I = V/R (use the equivalent R)
