## Homework Statement

The manufacturer of a 12V car headlight specifies it will draw a current of 6A. You would like to check this claim with an ammeter designed to measure currents up to 10A and having a resistance of 0.1 Ohms.

What is the current readings in (A) of figure a) and b)

## Homework Equations

I=V/R

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I think a has a value of 5.71 because 12/(2+.1)...is this wrong...and would figure b) be 0 since the fuse would blow? I'm basically lost.
