Draw a schematic diagram of an electric circuit consisting of battery of five 2V cells, a 20 Ω resistor, a 30 Ω resistor, a plug key, all connected in series. Calculate the value of current flowing through the 20 Ω resistor and the power consumed by the 30 Ω resistor.

The schematic diagram is shown below

Current Flowing Through 20Ω resistor

Current (I) = $\frac{Voltage (V)}{Resistance (R)}$

⇒ Current = $\frac{10}{20}=\frac12$ = 0.5 A

Hence the current flowing is 0.5 Ampere.

Power consumed by the 30 Ω resistor

Power = Voltage × current.

Given Voltage = 10V; current = 0.5A

⇒ Power = 10 × 0.5 = 5W

Hence power consumed by 30 Ω resistor is 5W.
