Are the resistors shown connected in parallel or in series?

The resistors are connected in parallel because the same current flows through all three resistors.

The resistors are connected in parallel because different current flows through all three resistors.

The resistors are connected in series because the same current flows through all three resistors.

The resistors are connected in series because different current flows through all three resistors.

Which of the following is a correct verbal expression for Ohmโs law

Ohmโs law says that the current through a resistor equals the voltage across the resistor multiplied by the resistance of the resistor.

Ohmโs law says that the voltage across a resistor equals the current through the resistor multiplied by the resistance of the resistor.

Ohmโs law says that the resistance of the resistor equals the current through the resistor multiplied by the voltage across a resistor.

Ohmโs law says that the voltage across a resistor equals the square of the current through the resistor multiplied by the resistance of the resistor.

Two identical resistors are connected in parallel across the terminals of a battery. If you increase the resistance of one of the resistors, what happens to the current through and the voltage across the other resistor?

The current and the voltage remain the same.

The current decreases and the voltage remains the same.

The current and the voltage increases.

The current increases and the voltage remains the same.
