    A battery with V = 2.27 V is connected to three resistors as shown in the figure, where R1 = 1.61 Ω, R2 = 4.71 Ω, and R3 = 5.07 Ω.

    a) Find the potential drop across resistor 2.


    b) Find the current in resistor 3.

    Is there a figure to accompany this?
    Do we see your attempt at the solution? If it is just 3 resistors in series, then how much current is flowing through them?

    there is no problem about picture.Some part of picture is not clear.But it hasnt deficient information.It is my homework and I cant find resultant resistant.
