Given: n = 100, R = 1 ohm

For obtaining the smallest resistance, these resistances are connected in parallel

Equivalent resistance = \(\frac{1}{1}\) + \(\frac{1}{1}\) + \(\frac{1}{1}\).....10 times = \(\frac{100}{1}\)

\(R_{eq} = \frac{1}{100}\) = 0.01 ohm

For obtaining the largest resistance, these resistances are connected in series.

Equivalent resistance = 1 + 1 + 1.....100 times = 100

\(R_{eq}\) = 100 ohm
