Q. 11

# Calculate the combined resistance in each case:

(a) Here both resistance i.e. R1 = 500 ohm, R2 = 1000 ohm are connected in series

So equivalent resistance R = R1 + R2 = 500 + 1000 = 1500ohm.

(b) Here both resistance i.e. R1=2ohm, R2=2ohm are connected in parallel

So equivalent resistance

1/R=1/R1+1/R2

1/R=1/2+1/2

R=1ohm

(c) Here resistance R1=4ohm and R2=4ohm are in parallel and R3=3ohm are in series

According to the given figure,

1/R=1/R1+1/R2

1/R=1/4+1/4

R=2ohm

Total resistance of the given circuit =R+R3

=2+3=5ohm
