Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Besides telling you they are equal, do they have a value assigned to any of them? Or is the voltage and current given? You are missing information needed to solve this problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are the resistors in series or parallel

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry they are parallel and they have no value I couldn't upload a picture but are two circuits R1, R2 and Voltage and there is no current given

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you understand the formular i put there. it is a given if two resistor in parallel with the same value you divide by two if it 3 with the same value divide by 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i understand the forumla but my biggest issue was finding the value of the two resistors because all was given was the equivalnent resistance of 33.3 ohms this is for my ECET class at devry.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but its physics it just sucks because my professor is really not that good at responding back and the book that we have is really not great for sshowing you how to do things

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We are making some assumptions. For example if the two resistors were 400 ohms the added resistor to make an equivalent amount of resistance of 33.3 would be a 40 Ohms. Check it out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes rada that it we want to add a 3rd resistor but we only given two in parallel and the total. we were not ask what value should we add to get 33.3ohms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The assumption was that the two were 100 Ohm and a 3rd 100 ohm would indeed be a 100 ohm, but there are many other possibilities.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought we were given a circuit with two branches with resistors and requested what would be the value of a resistor to connect to a third branch to make the equivalent resistance 33.3 Ohms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess if the third resistor had to equal the other two, then 100 can be the only answer

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no it says that the two resistors have to be equal

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have one that says that is the same as this one that has three branchs that have to be equal but for this problem it only request two branches to be equal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is where i kept getting confused because the book doesn't explain this and I couldn't figure out what to do.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well 100 for each will work, so will 400 for the two and 40 for the third.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see thats what i thought last night about 100 for both but then when you add them up and then divide them they don't come out to 33.3 if i divide 3 from 100 I come up with 33.3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I've read it agaIn and I find it confusing? Is the final circuit to be 2 or 3 resistors?

radar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The resistors are connected in the parallel configuration (branches rather then series.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The total resistance of parallel connected resistors will be less than the smallest resistor.

radar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also the total resistance is the recripocal of the sum of the reciprocal values.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes so i thought that if i divided 33.3 that would give me my answer for the two resistors but i was not sure about that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0O.K then they would be 66 2/3 ohms each. Like resistors when connected parallel, the total can be computed by dividing the resistor value by the number of resistors.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep it is confusing. you get to know your circuit to sort it out. it was left for too many interpretations.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i would just do the same thing for the three resistors correct

anonymous

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. do you have more?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i have another one just like the one we did earlier but its with three resistors but its the same problem

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i made all of them 100 then divde by three is that correct

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok then in that case you multiply the total by 3. remind you if they are is series you cannot multiply youhave to divide and that only work when the rsistor values are the same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Answer is 66.6 ohms. If you have 2 resistors with the same value,for a sample;R1=50 and R2=50 ,just divide one on half,50/2=25. In your problem 66.6/2=33.3 ohms. Or you can do this way R1xR2/R1+R2=66.6x66.6/66.6+66.6=33.3 Ohms.
