Physics

a)In the series circuits, what do you notice about the voltage across each resistor compared with the voltage of the battery? (There could be more than one answer)
1.The resistor voltages multiplied together give the battery's voltage
2.The resistor voltages subtract to get the battery's voltage
3.The resistor voltages add to get the battery's voltage
4.The resistor voltages are the same as the battery's voltage
5.The resistor voltages are smaller than the battery's
6.There does not appear to be a pattern relating the voltages of the resistors and the battery
7.The resistor voltages are larger than the battery's

  1. Why do you think this is so?(Select all that apply)
    1.Each resistor only uses up part of the energy, but together they use all of it.
    2.Each resistor only uses up part of the current, but together they use all of it.
    3.Each resistor uses up the same current.
    4.Each resistor uses up all the energy supplied by the battery.
    5.Each charge goes through all the resistors.
    6.Each charge only goes through one resistor.
