What is the current in the 8 ohm resistor?
Current flowing through 8 ohm resistor is 1 Ampere.
( the point which is connecting all resistance).
What is a 10 ohm resistor used for?
10 Ohm Through Hole Resistor
A passive device that resists the flow of electricity. Description: This resistor will provide 10 Ohms of resistance wherever it is placed and will handle 1/4 watts. Use these low value resistors for voltage dividers and where you need to keep the current flow as high as possible.
What happens if resistor is too high?
For a simple LED circuit there are no bad consequences of using a resistor of higher power. On the other hand, some type of high speed communication system may not like the increased capacitance to ground of a large resistor or, the increased series inductance.
How do I know what resistor to use?
Determine the resistance and the watts to be dissipated by the resistor. Determine the proper “Watt Size” (physical size) as controlled by watts, volts, permissible temperatures, mounting conditions and circuit conditions. Choose the most suitable kind of unit, including type, terminals and mounting.
