You are given one hundred 1 Ω resister. What is the smallest and largest resistance you can make in a circuit using these?
You are given one hundred 1 Ω resister. What is the smallest and largest resistance you can make in a circuit using these?
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
