Four resistances of 16 ohms each are connected in parallel. Four such combinations are connected in series. What is the total resistance?
When four resistors of 16 Ω each are connected in parallel, the effective resistance of the combination can be obtained as:
The effective resistance of combination is 4 Î.
When four such combinations are connected in series, the effective resistance becomes:
R = R1 + R2+ R3 + R4
R = 4 Î + 4 Î + 4 Î + 4 Î = 16 Ω
