# What Possible Values of Resultant Resistance One Can Get by Combining Two Resistances, One of Value 2 Ohm and the Other 6 Ohm? - Science

What possible values of resultant resistance one can get by combining two resistances, one of value 2 ohm and the other 6 ohm?

#### Solution

Connecting a 2 Ω and 6 Ω resistor in series combination:

R=R_1+R_2

R= 2Ω+6Ω=8Ω

Thus, we will get an 8 Ω resistor

Connecting a 2 Ω and 6 Ω resistor in parallel combination:

1/R=1/R_1+1/R_2

1/R=1/2+1/6

⇒1/R=4/6

⇒ R=6/4 Ω

Thus, we will get a 1.5 Ω resistor.
