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

First problem is a series circuit with 3 resistors. R1,R2,R3 is 3.0 ohms. This is all powered by a 3.0 V battery.

What is the current threw resistor 2?

2. Relevant equations

V=IR

3. The attempt at a solution

3.0=I(3.0)

Divide both sides by 3.0 and I got 1

.. the correct answer is 0.33 OHMs
