Asked Feb 6, 2019

Each of the resistors shown in the circuit diagram at left is a 6(Greek capital omega) resistor. Find the equivalent resistance of the network.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given that all the resistors are identical. The resistance of the resistors can be represented by R. The resistance of the resistors is 6 Ω.


The resistors are connected as shown in figure 1.

Step 2

The resistors R2 and R3 are parallel to each other. Thus, the connection can be represented as shown in figure 2.

Step 3

Here, R2||R3 represents the parallel connection of the resistances R2 and R3.


The expression for equivalent resistance ...
