The current in a series circuit is 11.0 A. When an additional 11.0-Ω resistor is inserted in series, the current drops to 6.6 A. What is the resistance in the original circuit?

  • Physics -

    R + 11 = (11A/6.6A)R 1.666R
    1.666R - 1R = 11
    0.666R = 11
    R = 16.5 Ohms. = Original Resistance.

  • Physics -

    Correction: R + 11=(11A/6.6A)*R= 1.666R.
