Question

suppose you have fuses of rating 5A and 15A .what will be the rating of the combination if they are connected 1)in series 2)in parallel


Solution

According to Ohm’s law, the voltage drop, V, across a resistor when a current flows through it is calculated using the equation V = IR, where I equals the current in amps (A) and R is the resistance in ohms (Ω). Another way to think of this is that V is the voltage necessary to make a current I flow through a resistance R. So the voltage drop across R1 is V1 = IR1, that across R2 is V2 = IR2, and that across R3 is V3 = IR3. The sum of these voltages equals the voltage output of the source; that is,
V = V1 + V2 + V3.
This equation is based on the conservation of energy and conservation of charge. Electrical potential energy can be described by the equation PE = qV, where q is the electric charge and V is the voltage. Thus the energy supplied by the source is qV, while that dissipated by the resistors is
qV1 + qV2 + qV3.
