SCENARIO 1


The boys think that they have determined the cause of the problem - the corroded battery cables have a higher resistance than new, clean battery cables would have.  This higher RESISTANCE is somehow preventing the starter motor from working properly.  Why?  Using what you know about Ohm’s law and electricity, choose the right answer from the choices below.





A.

A higher resistance leads to a lower voltage so the motor cannot start up.

B.

A higher resistance leads to too much current reaching the starter motor.

C.

A higher resistance lowers the current available to the starter motor.

D.

A high resistance short-circuits the system.
