## anonymous one year ago A 10.0 Ω resistor is in parallel with a 20.0 Ω resistor and supplied by a 9.00 V battery. What is the total current passing through the circuit? A. 0.38 A B. 1.35 A C. 1.13 A D. 6.00 A

1. Michele_Laino

the total or equivalent resistance is: $\Large {R_{EQ}} = \frac{1}{{\frac{1}{{10}} + \frac{1}{{20}}}} = ...\Omega$

6.6666666?

3. Michele_Laino

ok!

4. Michele_Laino

so the total current is: I=90/6.67=...amperes

5. anonymous

13.49?

6. Michele_Laino

ok! More precisely it is 13.5 amperes

7. anonymous

ohh my choices gives me 1.35 A.. would that be the solutoin?

8. Michele_Laino

sorry, it is: 9/6.67 which is equal to 1.35 amperes

9. anonymous

oh okay! yay! thanks!!:D
