# Chapter 19 - DC Circuits - Questions: 7

The battery supplies less power when the two resistors are connected in series.

#### Work Step by Step

Consider the power equation $P=\frac{V^{2}}{R}$. The voltage is constant, and the resistance increases when 2 resistors are in series instead of 1. The power decreases, and the battery supplies less power.
