Homework Help: Calculating potential difference

  1. Oct 26, 2008 #1
    I have done 1, i cant get the right answer for question 2. i seem to be getting minus7.5 volts. i know thats not anywhere near right because you can't get a minus voltage. i have tried many different ways to do this and i still cant get the right answer

    To get question 1 i used ohms law which gave me the two answers shown in the attachment, for question 2 i tried using the same method, but that gave me the wrong answer so i tried finding the conductance and from the resistance and the current, but that gave me - 7.5 volts. i ma very confused an i think i might be missing something very simple
