  • Q10
    A student creates a parallel circuit that has three branches. The student places a resistor on each branch of the circuit so that each path has only one resistor. The student collected some of the electrical measurements in the circuit and recorded them below. Based on the information above, which values should replace the A, B, and C in the Student Circuit Data table?
    Question Image
    A = 9 Ohms, B = 4.5 Amps, and C = 3 Volts
    A = 3 Ohms, B = 4.5 Amps, and C = 24 Volts
    A = 9 Volts, B = 9 Ohms, and C = 3 Amps
    A = 3 Volts, B = 9 Ohms, and C = 24 Amps
