## Homework Statement

Assume the wire resistance is 1.0 Ohms, the power supply is an ideal 6V voltage source, and the light bulb resistance is 30 Ohms.

In the circuit below:

a). A lightbulb is connected to the power supply using two such wires. Calculate the current (in A) in the circuit.

b) Calculate the voltage drop (in V) across each wire.

## Homework Equations

V=IR

R=dL/A

## The Attempt at a Solution

a.) I = 6/1 = 6ohms

b.) V = 6 x 1 = 6V

I have no clue how to do this problem. Professor hasn't taught this material yet.

Thanks
