Homework Help: Physics

Posted by BoBo on Monday, October 22, 2012 at 4:16pm.

Three resistors having the same resistance value are wired in parallel. How does the equivalent resistance compare to the resistance value of a single resistor?


The equivalent resistance is thrice the value of a single resistor.

The equivalent resistance is the same as the value of a single resistor.

The equivalent resistance is one third the value of a single resistor.

The equivalent resistance is greater than the value of a single resistor.



I would think that the equivalent resistance would be half of the value of the resistor, but that isn't an option... Help me, please?
