Numerical

Solve the following question:
In an electric circuit, two resistors of 12 0 each are joined in parallel to a 6 V battery. Find the current drawn from the battery.

#### Solution

Let net resistance of the given parallel combination be Rnet, Then

1/"R"_"net"=1/12+1/12

1/"R"_"net"= 2/12=1/6

⇒ Rnet = 6 Ω
Hence, current, "i"="V"/"R"_"net"=(6"V")/(6 Ω)=1"A".
