## Equivalent Resistance in Parallel Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Equivalent Resistance = (1/Resistance+1/Final Resistance)^(-1)
Req = (1/R+1/Ω)^(-1)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Equivalent Resistance - (Measured in Ohm) - Equivalent Resistance is the sum of all effective resistance across the battery.
Resistance - (Measured in Ohm) - Resistance is a measure of the opposition to current flow in an electrical circuit. Its S.I unit is ohm.
Final Resistance - (Measured in Ohm) - Final Resistance is a measure of the opposition to current flow in an electrical circuit. Resistance is measured in ohms, symbolized by the Greek letter omega (Ω).
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Resistance: 15 Ohm --> 15 Ohm No Conversion Required
Final Resistance: 50 Ohm --> 50 Ohm No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Req = (1/R+1/Ω)^(-1) --> (1/15+1/50)^(-1)
Evaluating ... ...
Req = 11.5384615384615

Temperature Dependence of Resistance
Resistance = Resistance at Reference Temperature*(1+Temperature Coefficient of Resistance*Change in Temperature)
Resistivity of Material
Resistivity = (2*[Mass-e])/(Number of Free Charge Particles per Unit Volume*[Charge-e]^2*Relaxation time)
Internal Resistance using Potentiometer
Resistance = (Length-Final Length)/Final Length*Final Resistance
Resistance
Resistance = (Resistivity*Length of Conductor)/Cross-Sectional Area
Resistance on Stretching of Wire
Resistance = (Final Resistance*Length^2)/((Final Length)^2)
Resistance of Wire
Resistance = Resistivity*Length/Cross-Sectional Area
Equivalent Resistance in Parallel
Equivalent Resistance = (1/Resistance+1/Final Resistance)^(-1)
Equivalent Resistance in Series
Equivalent Resistance = Resistance+Final Resistance

## Equivalent Resistance in Parallel Formula

Equivalent Resistance = (1/Resistance+1/Final Resistance)^(-1)
Req = (1/R+1/Ω)^(-1)

## How is equivalent resistance connected in parallel calculated ?

A parallel circuit of resistors is one in which the same voltage is applied across all the components in a parallel grouping of resistors.
1/Req = 1/ R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 +............. + 1/R4
