1. Figure below shows a circuit with three resistors, a power supply and four voltmeters.
a. Calculate the combined resistance of the three resistors.
b. Write down two relationships for the currents in the circuit.
c. Write down two relationships for the voltmeter readings in the circuit.
2. The circuit of figure below is set up to run a small immersion heater from a 6.0 V battery.
a. State the name and purpose of component X.
b. The heater is designed to work from a 3.6 V supply. It has a power rating of 4.5 W at
this voltage.
(i)
Calculate the current in the heater when it has the correct potential difference
across it.
(ii)
Calculate the resistance of component X if there is to be the correct potential
difference across the heater. The battery and the ammeter both have zero
resistance.
