Question

# In a series connection of resistors, what happens to the current across each resistor?

- Increases
- Decreases
- Remain the same
- Initially increases and then decreases

Hint:

### In a series circuit, all the components are arranged in a single line. In a parallel circuit, all the components are arranged parallel to each other.

## The correct answer is: Remain the same

- In a series circuit, all the components are arranged in a single line. In a parallel circuit, all the components are arranged parallel to each other. If more than one resistor is connected in series, the voltage across each resistor is not the same though the current flow is the same throughout the circuit.
- The amount of current in a series circuit is the same through any component in the circuit. This is because there is only one path for current flow in a series circuit.
- The current flowing through each resistor is same when connected in series.

### Some homes are still heated by hot water boiler furnaces. The components of the system are an oil tank, a furnace, water pipes and radiators. The furnace burns the oil from the storage tank. The heat released is used to heat water which is then pumped to radiators throughout the house. A diagram is shown below.

If all the heat from the combustion was used to heat the water, the system would be 100% efficient. However, some heat is lost in the furnace exhaust and some is lost from the pipes delivering the water to the radiators.

One litre of oil delivers 48 000 kJ of energy. 7 600 kJ are lost to the exhaust, and 900 kJ are lost in transporting the hot water to the radiators. Determine the efficiency of this heating system.
