A wire of 12ohm is converted to a regular hexagon. A cell of 10 potential is connected across two consecutive edges of hexagon. Find current and voltage drop across each side of hexagon.

Expert Answer:

AS the total resistance of the wire is 12 ohm and this is divided into 6 sides to form a hexagon. this means the resistance of each side is 2 ohm.
 
If a cell of 10 potential is connected across two consecutive edges of hexagon, then the current through each side will be (10/2) = 5 A and voltage drop across each side will be 10 V only.
