Three conductors of 3 ohms, 5 ohms and 2 ohms are connected in series. determine the total resistance of the circuit.

With a serial connection, the end of the first conductor is connected to the beginning of the next, and so on. Each of the conductors increases the total resistance of the circuit.
Rtot. = R1 + R2 + R3;
Rtot. = 3 + 5 + 2 = 10 ohms.
Answer: the total resistance of the circuit is 10 ohms.
