Question

Asked Feb 6, 2019

For each arrangement of resistors, find the equivalent resistance. In other words, what single resistor would offer the same obstacle to the flow of current?

Step 1

(a)

Resistors 8Ω and 24Ω are parallel. Therefore, the equivalent resistance *R*_{p} is,

Step 2

*R*_{p} and 12Ω are in series. Therefore, the equivalent resistance *R* is,

Step 3

(b)

Resistors 4Ω and 4Ω on the left branch are parallel. The...
