please help i'm am having lots of trouble undersanding electric circuits. my question says " use kirchhoff's loop rule and ohm's law to derive the equation for the equivalent resistance of four resistors connected in a series. concisely explain each step. " so i know that the eqaution for equivalent resistance is R=R1+R2+R3+R4 and that kirchhoff's loop rule is EV=0 and that ohm's law is I^2R. but how do i use that to get the equivalent i'm so confused. please help.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
