Question

# A wire has a resistance of 6Ω.  It is cut into two parts and both half values are connected in parallel. The new resistance is6 Ω 3 Ω 1.5 Ω 12 Ω

Solution

## The correct option is C 1.5 Ω Resistance of each part = 3Ω Since the two parts are joined in parallel, effective resistance is given by 1RP=1R+1R⇒Rp=R2=32=1.5Ω
