(2) 1500 Ù resistors are connected in series. They are then connected in parallel to a single (1)
5 kÙ resistor.
a) Draw the circuit before and after reduction:
b) What is the equivalent resistance of the circuit?
R1 = 1.5K Ohms
R2 = 1.5K Ohms.
R3 = 5K Ohms.
R1 + R2 = 1.5K + 1.5K = 3K.
Req = 3k*5k / (3k + 5k) = 15k / 8k = 1.875k = 1875 Ohms.
