Electronics: Resistors in parallel

From relation for calculating the resistance of parallel combination of resistors:

1R=1R1+1R2\dfrac{1}{R} = \dfrac{1}{R1} + \dfrac{1}{R2}


Calculate the R, if R1 = 2Ω a R2 = 15Ω

Result

R =  1.76 Ω

Solution:

R = \dfrac{1}{ \dfrac{1}{ 2}+\dfrac{1}{ 15}} = 1.76 \ &\text{Omega};



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
