(a) What is the direction of the resulting current?

clockwise? OR counterclockwise?

(b) What are the following potential differences?

VW − VZ = _______ V

VX − VW = ________V

VX − VY =  ________V

VZ − VY =  ________V

(c) If we define the electric potential at the negative terminal of the battery to be zero, what are the electric potentials at the following?

point W ______V

point X ______ V

point Y ______ V

point Z ______ V

conventional current flows CW

electron current flows CCW

(b) What are the following potential differences?

VW − VZ = 0 V

VX − VW = +5.8 V

VX − VY = 0 V

VZ − VY = –5.8 V

(c) If we define the electric potential at the negative terminal of the battery to be zero, what are the electric potentials at the following?

point W 0 V

point X +5.8 V

point Y +5.8 V

point Z 0 V

(d) What is the current through the resistor?

I = E/R = 5.8 v / 12.1 Ω = 0.479 A

What is the current through wire XY? 0.479 A

What is the current through the battery? 0.479 A
