What is the resistance between A and B in the figure given below?
What is the resistance between A and B in the figure given below?
The three resistance of 20 ohm, 10 ohm and 20 ohm on the extreme right side are in series.
So, the resultant of these three resistance = 20 + 20 + 10
= 50 ohms.
This 50 ohms is in parallel with 30 ohms. So resultant of these two will be
\(\frac{1}{R}\) = \(\frac{1}{30}\) + \(\frac{1}{50}\)
= \(\frac{1}{R}\) = \(\frac{80}{1500}\)
R = 18.75 ohms
Now, the resistances 10 ohms, 18.75 ohms and 10 ohms are in series.
Therefore, resultant resistance = 18.75 + 10 + 10
= 38.75 ohms
