# Find the Equivalent Resistance Between Points a and B - Physics

Short Note

Find the equivalent resistance between points A and B

#### Solution

As shown in the circuit diagram all the 3Ω resistors re connected in parallel.

1/R_1=1/3+1/3+1/3

R_1=1Omega

Resistors 4Ω and 6Ω are connected in parallel.

1/R_2=1/4+1/6=5/12

R_2=12/5Omega

Now R1, R2 and 5Ω are connected in series

R_(AB)=1+12/5+5

R_(AB)=42/5

R_(AB)=8.4Omega

Is there an error in this question or solution?
