Five resistors are connected in a circuit, as shown above.
resistor A = 3?
resistor B = 6?
resistor C = 4?
resistor D = 8?
resistor E = 8?
If the resistance of resistor C is increased, what happens to the current through the battery and the current through each resistor?Irepresents the current through the battery,Ia the current through resistor A, etc.
A. I and IA stay the same; Ic, Id, and Ie decrease; while Ib decreases.
B. All the currents stay the same except for Ic, which decreases.
C. I, Ia, and Ie stay the same; Ic and Id decrease; while Ib increases.
D. All the currents decrease except for Ib, which increases.
E. All the currents decrease.
F. I, Ia, and Ib stay the same; Ic and Id decrease; while Ie increases.
