Problem 30.6: Bad circuits
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
What is wrong with these circuits? Close the switches to see what happens and then explain what is wrong. Note which circuit elements are destroyed (electric potential is given in volts and resistance is given in ohms). Choose a new circuit after a circuit element is "destroyed." Restart.
