Note that the negative terminal of one cell is connected to the positive terminal of the next cell. This series connection causes the cell voltages to be added. Since there are four cells in the example, the battery voltage will be approximately 6 volts. 5 volts. As a cell ages, its emf decreases. 1ST 2ND 3RD 4TH (A) A battery of four cells. (B) Schematic representation. Figure 1-28 Illustrating series-connected dry cells. Current does not flow in a circuit unless the circuit is closed. Figure 1-29 shows the difference between a closed circuit and an open circuit.

Note that after the fuse blows, the voltage between its terminals will be 6 volts. 8 volts, in accordance with Ohm’s law. 2 volt, in accordance P1: GDZ GB034-01 GB034-Rosenberg-Sample May 6, 2004 21:40 Char Count= 0 30 Chapter 1 with Ohm’s law. We call the voltage between the load-resistor terminals the voltage drop across the resistor; similarly, we call the voltage between the fuse terminals the voltage drop across the fuse. When we speak of a voltage drop, we simply mean that this amount of voltage would be measured by a voltmeter connected across the terminals of resistance.
