If each resistor in the circuit shown is 5.0 Ω and the battery is 12.0 V, what does the second voltmeter (V2) read?

   

   

0.35 V

0.96 V

2.4 V

4.8 V

 

pretty sure its 4.8 V

Total resistance =  5 + 5 + 5*5/(10) = 12.5 ohms

Current through the circuit = 12 v / 12.5 ohms = .96 A

V2 = I R2 =  .96 A  *  5 ohms = 4.8 v   across R4
