Answer on Question #43236 Physics Electric CircuitsQuestion.A wire of resistance 15.0 ohm is bent to form a regular hexagon ABCDEFA. Find the equivalentresistance of the loop between the points (a) A and B, (b) A and C, (c) A and D.Solution.In this problem we can imagine the resistance of the wire, as the sum of the resistances ofresistors connected in series or in parallel, which are the sides of a regular hexagon.Fig.1. The representation of the sides of a regular hexagon in the form of identical resistors inseries.So, = 15 is the resistance of the wire;1 = = = = = = .We can define, that the resistance of each side is equally, because this is a regular hexagon. Bydefinition the resistance is:= is the electrical resistiv ...
