Q. 134.5( 4 Votes )

How many times will be the equivalent resistance of two identical resistors be increased if the parallel arrangement is changed to a series arrangement?

Answer :

The effective resistance in parallel combination is

That of series combination is Rs = 2R. Thus, we get Rs = 4Rp, i.e., equivalent resistance increases four times.
