4 loads are connected in series across 120volts and 3 ampere current exists.one load fail to perate.the voltage across each divece is 40 volts.what circuit fault is indicated?

Hello,

If the voltage accross each remaining element is 40 Volts.
How many volts are there accross the "defective" element?
What is wrong with the "defective" element?

Greetings,
Bertus

It sounds like the answer must be "short circuit". An open circuit would result in 0V across each device.
