Worksheet # 2.08 Ohm’s Law
Class __________________________________
1. Write down and memorize Ohm’s Law:
2. Sketch the symbol for a battery:
3. Sketch the battery again and connect it to three resistors in parallel with each other.
4. Sketch a complete circuit that includes a 12 volt battery connected to three resistors in
parallel with each other having values of 2 ohms, 3 ohms and 2 ohms. Connect the three
parallel resistors to a 2.25 ohm resistor in series with the parallel resistors, add a switch
and then complete the circuit back to the battery. Label the current.
5. Write down and memorize the fraction rule that is used to add resistors that are in
parallel with one another.
6. Use the fraction rule to determine the total resistance of a 2 ohm, 3 ohm and 2 ohm
resistor in parallel. Show all work, including determining the common denominator.
7. What is the decimal equivalent of 6/8 ? ___________________________
8. The series equivalent of the parallel resistors is 0.75 ohms. That group of parallel
resistors is in series with a 2.25 ohm resistor. What is the total resistance in the circuit?
Show your work.
9. Use Ohm’s law to determine the current in the main body of the circuit. ________________
10. Determine the voltage drop across the 2.25 ohm resistor. ______________________
11. Determine the voltage drop across the 0.75 ohm group of parallel resistors. ________________
12. Write down and memorize the definition of electrical current:
13. Write down and memorize the equation that allows us to calculate the power required by
an electrical circuit. __________________________
14. How much power in watts, is required for a circuit that has 3 amps of current and a 12
volt power supply? __________________________________________
