Ok! So now part b how much power dissipated through a 10 ohm resistor. The power equation.Correct .

8? It seems wrong for some reasonWhat is the voltage across the 10 ohm resistor?

They don't? http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/3484/hidden17.gif [Broken]Ok! So now part b how much power dissipated through a 10 ohm resistor. The power equation.
P=IV
or
P=I^{2}(r)
or
P= v^{2}/R
I tried a few answers but none of them work.
.8 amps?They don't? http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/3484/hidden17.gif [Broken]
How much current is flowing in just one of the 10Ω resistors?
Then I^{2}·R =.8 amps?
It would be 6.4, and it's wrong because I plugged in the answer and it said it was wrong.Then I^{2}·R =
and what makes you think this isn't right?
6.4 watts is correct.It would be 6.4, and it's wrong because I plugged in the answer and it said it was wrong.
Oh, right yeah, I just didn't put the decimal point in. Silly me.6.4 watts is correct.
