R1=4ohms;R2=3ohms Since it is connected in series. R=4+3=7ohms. Ans.Increases. |

In series Rt=R1+R2+R3+R4+ ... |

The effective resistance in series is the sum of resistance. Therefore if a resistance is added in series,the overall resistance will increase. Answer-INCREASES |

We know that in series combination R = R1+R1+R3+R4+ .... Rn. So resistance will increase. |

Gurmangat said: (Sep 18, 2011) | |

R=R1+R2=R3+R4+............Rn So resistance will increase. |

Priya.R said: (Sep 20, 2011) | |

In series combination R = R1+R1+R3+R4+ .... Rn. So resistance will surely increase |

Before three resister which conection. |

SUPPOSE,R1=5OHM, R2=6OHM R3=4OHM SO R4=? IN SERIES, THE RESISTANCE IS 1/R,SO, R1+R2+R3+R4=MORE THEN R1+R2+R3 SO, RESISTANCE IS INCREASE. |

Since the value of the resistors is not given ,assuming that the fourth resistor R is connected in series with three more resistors the net resistance is R1+R2+R3+R4 = R+R+R+R =4R. The 4th resistor added increases the resistance by one fourth.( if all the resistance are equal) |

Suppose r1=1ohm, r2=2ohm, r3=3ohm. Then we know in series R=r1+r2+r3. i.e 1+2+3=6ohm. Therefore by adding one more resistance it's resistance automatically increases as per in series circuit. |

Meena said: (Dec 15, 2012) | |

Suppose when three resistances are added together then the resistance value will increases, because we know that when they are connected in series then the result will be R=r1+r2+r3. |

Sravya said: (Jan 27, 2013) | |

When the resistances are connected in series all the resistances are added hence the value of resistance increase. |

Vasantha said: (Aug 25, 2013) | |

R1 = 6 ohm R2=4 ohm when these two are connected in series i.e. R1+R2=10 ohm so the value is gradually increase so like this the value of the fourth resistor is also increases. |

Kalai said: (Nov 7, 2013) | |

We know that resistance are connected series R=R1+R2+R3...+Rn. Resistance increase. |

Sher Singh Meena said: (May 20, 2014) | |

Because we know that, R = R1+R2+R3+.......+Rn. So if another resistor is connected in series then total resistance of the circuit will be increase. |

Parth M Dodia said: (Jul 26, 2014) | |

When resistors are in the series connection, it's resistance are increased because the formula of the series connections is R=R1+R2+R3+....+Rn. |

Thanu said: (Feb 18, 2015) | |

In a series circuit is R=R1+R2+R3+R4. So resistance will be increase. |

Santosh said: (Jul 6, 2015) | |

Resistance in series so are R1+R2+R3+R4+..... |

Pandya Smit said: (Jul 30, 2015) | |

r1+r2+r3 = R. Resistance are in series so R+r4 . So increase. |

Utkarsh Soni said: (Sep 9, 2015) | |

Obviously the resistance will increase because there's a series connection. Answer won't be option A, because in series connection there be always addition not multiplication. |

Mukesh Kumar said: (Feb 7, 2017) | |

In the circuit, the total resistance is increased so by ohms law. r =v/i. |

Danish Kamal said: (Mar 2, 2017) | |

Increases, because in Series Circuit. Rt = R1 + R2 + R3 + R4. |

Sukhwinder Singh said: (Mar 20, 2017) | |

Series resistance increases and current is same R = r1 + r2 + r3 + r4. |

Romaine Thmpson said: (May 8, 2018) | |

Thank you for explaining the answer. |

Subhash said: (May 15, 2018) | |

In a series connection, the total resistance is equal to the sum of all resistors as new resistor is added, resistance increases. For example : if resistors are 1,2,3 ohms then total resistance is 6 ohms. If 4 ohms is added then total becomes 10 ohms. HENCE PROVED. |

Sadiqul Islam Shamim said: (Jan 24, 2019) | |

R1=4ohms; R2=3ohms Since it is connected in series. R=4+3=7ohms. Answer is Increases. |

In series Rt = R1+R2+R3+R4+ .. |
