Q. 94.9( 8 Votes )

How can three resistance of 2, 3 and 6 ohms be connected so as to give a total resistance of 1 ohm?

Answer :

If we connect the given three resistors as shown in the figure below then we get net resistance as 1Ω. Here all the resistors are connected in parallel.


their equivalent resistance will be given as




Req = 1 Ω.


Therefore, the resistances must be connected in parallel to get equivalent resistance of 1 Ω.
