Suppose you had a circuit with three resistors in series and you measured I=7.0 milliamps; V = 14.7 volts; V1= 3.5 volts and V2 = 1.4 volts. What would be the voltage across the third resistor? What would its resistance be?

  1. the total = 14.7
    so
    3.5 + 1.4 + V3 = 14.7

    R3 = V3/(7*10^-3)
