Closed circuit

In a closed circuit, there is a voltage source with U1 = 12 V and with an internal resistance R1 = 0.2 Ω. The external resistance is R2 = 19.8 Ω.
Determine the electric current and terminal voltage.


I =  0.6 A
U2 =  11.88 V


U1=12 V R1=0.2 Ω R2=19.8 Ω  I=U1R1+R2=120.2+19.8=35=0.6 AU_{1}=12 \ \text{V} \ \\ R_{1}=0.2 \ Ω \ \\ R_{2}=19.8 \ Ω \ \\ \ \\ I=\dfrac{ U_{1} }{ R_{1}+R_{2} }=\dfrac{ 12 }{ 0.2+19.8 }=\dfrac{ 3 }{ 5 }=0.6 \ \text{A}
U2=I R2=0.6 19.8=29725=11.88 VU_{2}=I \cdot \ R_{2}=0.6 \cdot \ 19.8=\dfrac{ 297 }{ 25 }=11.88 \ \text{V}

Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
