Resistance - ohms

If the resistance of the first resistor is 300 ohms and the resistance of the second resistor is 100 ohms. What is the resulting resistance?

Correct answer:

RS =  400 Ω
RP =  75 Ω

Step-by-step explanation:

R1=300 Ω R2=100 Ω RS=R1+R2=300+100=400 Ω
RP=11R1+1R2=11300+1100=75 Ω



Did you find an error or inaccuracy? Feel free to write us. Thank you!

Hi. I love these. They help me brush up on basic electronics. May I request either the voltage or current so I can calculate for P? I think you are asking for Power and in Watts? Correct? Thanks. Bart.
