Ohm's law:

$\overline{){\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{i}}{\mathbf{R}}}$

The voltage across the 10Ω resistor is:

V_{10} = (0.96)(10) = 9.6 V

The resistors are connected in parallel. The potential difference across them is 9.6 V.

Part A Consider the circuit shown in (Figure 1). Assume I = 0.96 A

What is the value of resistor R?
