## anonymous one year ago If each resistor in the circuit shown is 5.0 Ω and the battery is 12.0 V, what does the second voltmeter (V2) read? 4.8 V 2.4 V 0.96 V 0.35 V

we can draw this equivalent circuit: |dw:1433193252845:dw|

5. Michele_Laino

the current is: $I = \frac{V}{{5 + 5 + 2.5}} = \frac{{12}}{{12.5}} = 0.96Amperes$ |dw:1433193382064:dw| so the requested voltage is: $\Delta {V_2} = 5 \times 0.96 = ...Volts$

Thank you for your help now I understand this completely.
