Series Circuit JAVA Troubleshooting Simulation #4 

In the circuit below 1% tolerance resistors were selected so voltages at TP1 thru TP4 were  within 1% of 12.0, 6.0, 3.0, and 1.5 volt respectively. Troubleshoot faulty circuit 1 thru 4 and determine out of tolerance resistor for each circuit.

       Vs = 12.0 Vdc Rs = .2 ohm maximum      
R1 = 40 , R2 = 20, R3 =10, and R4 = 10 ohm + or - 1%

DC Voltmeter Volts

No Fault
Fault 1
Fault 2
Fault 3
Fault 4

After pressing the answer button you will see the present values of the resistors. You will still have to calculate which one is out of 1% tolerance.
