Since the current flow in the series circuit is the same throughout
the circuit, the value of current flowing through any resistor (IR1,
IR2, and IR3) is equal to the value of total current (It). The formula
which expresses this relation is
It = IR1 = IR2 = IR3
a. The total current in a series circuit is ____________ to the
current through any resistor in the circuit.
b. Select the formula used to express the relationship of
current throughout a series circuit.
It + IR1 + IR3 = IR2
It = IR1 + IR2 + IR3
It = IR1 = IR2
=IR3 = ...
c. Match each symbol in column A with the function it represents
in column B.
Current flow through R1.
Voltage drop across R3.
