## Stuck on question about resistance

 Great that you're learning electronics! Let me see if I can help with these circuit questions: For the first one, we know: drift hunters - Voltage drop BC = 2V - Voltage drop CD = 3V Since those drops are in series, the total voltage drop from A to E is their sum: Voltage drop AE = Voltage BC + Voltage CD = 2V + 3V = 5V We don't know the actual voltage at points A or E, but we know the difference between them is 5V. +1 vote by weberralph September 05, 2023 Add comment...
