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 -

    E/R = 11.0
    E/(R+11) = 6

    Since the voltage drop is the same in both cases,

    11.0R = 6.6(R+11)
    R = 16.5Ω
