We discussed the amount of work done by the amount of current. The more current flowing, the more work accomplished. With this in mind, answer the following question: Which component has the greatest resistance, a taillight bulb or a starter motor? If you said taillight bulb, you were correct. Let us think 24 Chapter 3 G Et i Figure 3-8 The size of the load and its resistance are not equaI. through this example together. Which component is doing the least amount of work? The taillight is. This then means that it must be drawing the least current, and Ohm’s Law says that if the current is down, the resistance must be up.
