By what factor does the current that flows through the 4.0Ω
resistor increase? Give your answer to 2 significant figures.
i got 5??
Given what you’ve said above, and assuming that I’ve interpreted it correctly, you should find that the voltage across the 4 ohm resistor in the first setup is 1/3 and 5/3 in the second. As such, the current in the first setup is 1/12 and in the other it’s 5/12. This means it’s increased by a factor of 5. Is 5 not the right answer?
it was 5.0
