In a series circuit, resistance is added. So the requried answer=1Ohm×12=12Ohm.

Series resistance is additive.

1Ω × 12 = 12Ω

Twelve 1Ω resistors in series is 12Ω resistance.

In a series circuit, that means the light bulbs are connected one after the other, resistances are added. In this case with twelve identical resistances of 1 Ohm, we can more easily say 12 x 1 Ohm = 12 Ohms.

What makes it "urgent?" Are you choking? Bleeding? Out of time?

Miss planning on your part does NOT constitute an urgent/emergency on our's.

When light bulbs are in series, the total resistance is the sum of the resistances. This is 12 ohms.

The total resistance of a series circuit is equal to the sum of individual resistances.

In a series circuit you will need to calculate the total resistance of the circuit in order to figure out the amperage. This is done by adding up the individual values of each component in series.

In this example we have three resistors. To calculate the total resistance we use the formula:

RT = R1 + R2 + R3

2 + 2 + 3 = 7 Ohms

R total is 7 Ohms

Now apply this to your problem. 🙂

suck your mom you unhelpful **** bag. you're gonna die in 7 years anyways you wrinkly bag of bones. I bet you reek of death and little kids.
