Question

# Magnitude of current across each resistor in a series combination

- Is different in all parts
- Changes as per the value of resistance
- Is the same across each resistance
- None of the above

Hint:

### In a **series combination** of resistors, the **current**** flowing** through each resistor is the **same** as the **current**** flows in one direction**.

## The correct answer is: Is the same across each resistance

### The magnitude of current across each resistor in a series combination is the same across each resistance.

- The current flow in each resistor of a series is equally distributed.
- When a voltage of current is applied to a circuit of a series of resistors, each resistor bears the same voltage and same resistance to them.
- So the magnitude of current across each resistor in a series combination remains the same across each resistor.

### 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.
