Struggling :( Intro to physics TAQ 4

Postby MrsEvs » Sat Sep 24, 2016 4:30 pm

Hi

I'm trying to work out why the voltage of the battery is 12V and the voltometer reads 8V (limited ref to this in materials). Is the potential difference over resistor 1 4V?

Thought it was you. You must definitely be one of the Fab 5 - do I get to nominate you?!

I could cry over TAQ 4.3. This stuff just isn't in the materials. I'm tempted to submit saying so.

Cheers - there is no peer nominated award - maybe it's an idea :thumbup:

Hi

Have a look at page 55 of the materials, it has an example there on how to work out the voltages across resistors in a circuit.

Students, please note, sharing of answers to the assessments is considered to be plagiarism, please do not encourage answer sharing on any social media. If you still have a problem with working out an answer, book a call with your tutor who will be happy to go over it with you. At the end of the day, when you complete your diploma, you want to be proud of your achievement, if it has been based on an answer copied or shared from someone else, it is a hollow victory.

Hi,

I am also struggling with this question, and not finding page 55 very helpful! Any better sources out there?

Thanks

Tina

It depends which part of TAQ 4 you are struggling with.
It really helps to print out/draw the diagram of the circuit, and then write on it what you know from the question, as well any other voltages, current or resistance that you have worked out.

In that case I recommend that you request a tutorial with your tutor to see what it is about circuits that you are having problems with.
