Question

Given three resistors of 2Ω,4Ω and 6Ω, the minimum equivalent resistance one can obtain is .


A
12/11 Ω
loader
B
11/12 Ω
loader
C
13/16 Ω
loader
D
11/12 Ω
loader

Solution

The correct option is A 12/11 Ω
Always remember that when you connect a bunch of resistors in parallel, the effective resistance will be smaller than the smallest resistor.
And when you connect them in series, the effective resistance will obviously be larger than the largest resistor.
So connecting them in parallel is the right plan of action. Let’s see what we get.
1R=12+14+16
Once again, we appeal to 3rd standard mathematics to add fractions.
1R=6+3+212
R=1211Ω
