## What is the resistance of three 6 Ω resistors connected in series?

18-Ω

The presence of three 6-Ω resistors in series would be equivalent to having one 18-Ω resistor in the circuit. And the presence of four 6-Ω resistors in series would be equivalent to having one 24-Ω resistor in the circuit.

## When Three 6 ohm resistors are connected in parallel its effective resistance will be?

Three 6-Ω resistors placed in parallel would provide a resistance which is equivalent to one 2-Ω resistor. c.

**How will you connect three identical resistance Each of 6 ohm to get an equivalent resistance 4 ohm?**

The third 6 Ω resistor is in series with 3 Ω. Hence, the net resistance of the circuit is 6 Ω + 3 Ω = 9 Ω. ∴ the total resistance is 4 Ω.

### What happens to the total resistance when three resistors are connected in parallel?

When resistors are connected in parallel, more current flows from the source than would flow for any of them individually, so the total resistance is lower.

### How will you connect 3 resistors of 6 ohm so that the resultant resistance would be 9 ohms 4 ohms?

Answer: To obtain a combined resistance of 9 ohms, three resistors each of resistance 6 ohm should be connected in a parallel circuit and one in series. In a parallel circuit, the equivalent resistance of all the resistors connected is equal to the reciprocal value of the sum of the individual resistances.

**What is the equivalent resistance of 3 resistors?**

Likewise, if three or more resistors each with the same value are connected in parallel, then the equivalent resistance will be equal to R/n where R is the value of the resistor and n is the number of individual resistances in the combination.

#### What is the total resistance across the single 6 ohm resistor?

Here the resistance will be two 6 ohm resistor connected in series and that combination is connected parallel to 6 ohm resistor. Well, If you rearrange the resistors so that they are two resistors in parallel (a 6 ohm and a 12 ohm) you will find that the total parallel resistance across the single 6 ohm resistor is “4 OHMS”.

#### What is the potential difference between two resistors in parallel?

For resistance in the parallel ,voltage across each resistor is same and total current is sum of current through each resistor. Potential difference across each resistance remains same in parallel . Then use Ohm”s law. In your opinion, what would be the average initial startup cost for product development?

**How do you find the total resistance of a circuit?**

To obtain a total resistance of 4 Ω from three resistors of given resistances, Firstly, connect the two resistors of 3Ω and 6Ω in parallel to get a total resistance of 2Ω which is less than the lowest individual resistance. Hence, the total resistance of the circuit is 4 Ω.

## How many resistors can I add to a circuit?

You can input up to 10 resistors in total. Let’s look at an example for the second, slightly more complicated, mode: Select “Calculate missing resistor” under Mode. Now input the total resistance you want you circuit/collection of resistors to have.
