## Homework Statement

You would like to check if the battery voltage drops while it is supplying a current of 6A. You use a voltmeter designed to measure voltages up to 20V and having a resistance of 50,000 Ohms. Which of the two circuits below should be used?

a.) How much current (in A) would flow through the headlight for Circuit a?

b). How much current (in A) would flow through the headlight for Circuit b?

## Homework Equations

delta(V) = IR

## The Attempt at a Solution

Circuit a should be used because it has the least resistance.

a.) I = 12/50000 = 2.4e-4

b.) I = 12/50000 = 2.4e-4
