Consider a circuit with two 10 ohm resistors in series and connected to a 6 V battery. A certain current flows through it. What would happen to that current if you added a third 10 ohm resistor in series with the other two? Would the current increase, decrease, stay the same, or become zero after you added the third resistor? Give a short justification of your answer. #### Earn Coins
