(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A schematic diagram incorporates a 12V battery in series with a 3.0 ohm resistor. The current then flows through 12 ohm and 4.0 ohm resistors in parallel with each other.

a) calculate the current through and voltage across each resistor. 3.0ohm 4.0 ohm 12ohm 24ohm 4.8 ohm 4.0 ohm

2. Relevant equations

V=IR I=V/R

3. The attempt at a solution

Would I simply plug these into the equation and get an answer?

12/3=4A, 12/4=3A, 12/12=1A, 12/24=.5A, 12/4.8=2.5A 12/4=3A

For voltage would I just plug these answers into the V=IR equation.
