## Circuit A has a resistance of 7.5 ohms, and circuit B has a resistance of 5 ohms. Which statement about the circuits must be correct?(1 point)

Responses

If the voltage of circuit A is equal to the voltage of circuit B, then the current in circuit A is equal to the current in circuit B.
If the voltage of circuit A is equal to the voltage of circuit B, then the current in circuit A is equal to the current in circuit B.

If the voltage of circuit A is equal to the voltage of circuit B, then the current in circuit A is less than the current in circuit B.
If the voltage of circuit A is equal to the voltage of circuit B, then the current in circuit A is less than the current in circuit B.

If the current in circuit A is less than the current in circuit B, then the voltage in circuit A is less than the voltage in circuit B.
If the current in circuit A is less than the current in circuit B, then the voltage in circuit A is less than the voltage in circuit B.

If the current in circuit A is equal to the current in circuit B, then the voltage in circuit A is less than the voltage in circuit B.

## If the current in circuit A is less than the current in circuit B, then the voltage in circuit A is less than the voltage in circuit B.

This statement is correct because according to Ohm's Law (V = I*R), if the current in circuit A is lower than circuit B, and the resistance in circuit A is higher than circuit B, then the voltage drop in circuit A will also be less than in circuit B.

## It limits the amount of electrical energy that can pass through a circuit.

This statement best defines the resistance of an electric circuit. Resistance is a property of a material or component that limits the flow of electrical current through it, thereby restricting the amount of electrical energy that can pass through the circuit.

## An electric circuit has an expected current of 80 amps. An electrician measures the current in the circuit at 120 amps. Which statement provides a possible explanation for this observation?(1 point)

## A resistor in the circuit is broken.

If the measured current in the circuit is higher than the expected current, it could be due to a broken or damaged resistor in the circuit, reducing the resistance and allowing more current to flow. This would explain the higher current reading by the electrician.
