Define equivalent resistance in short and simple words.
Asked by Abhay Kaul | 4th Apr, 2014, 06:57: PM
Equivalent resistance represents the total or overall effect off all resistors in the circuit.
For resistors R1,R2 and R3 connected in series, the effective resistance Re is given by
Re = R1+R2+R3
For resistors R1,R2 and R3 connected in parallel, the effective resistance Re is given by
(1/Re) = (1/R1)+(1/R2)+(1/R3)
Effective resistance implies a single resistance equivalent to the total resistance of all other resistors in the circuit.It is purely a resistive property.Equivalent resistance is defined between the two terminals or nodes of the network
