Textbook Problem

Two resistors, R1 and R2 are connected in series. (a) If R1 = 2.00 Ω and R2 = 4.00 Ω, calculate the single resistance equivalent to the series combination. (b) Repeat the calculation for a parallel combination of R1 and R2.

(a)

To determine
The single resistance equivalent to the series combination.

Explanation

Given Info: The two resistors R1=2.00Ω and R2=4.00Ω are connected in series.

Explanation:

Formula to calculate the single resistance equivalent to the series combination is,

Requ=R1+R2

  • Requ is the equivalent resistance,
  • R1 and R2 is the resistors connected in series,

Substitute 2.00Ω for R1 and 4

(b)

To determine
The single resistance equivalent to the parallel combination.
