19.47. Set Up: A network of N of the resistors in series has resistance and a network of N of the resistors in parallel has resistance Solve: (a) A parallel combination of two resistors in series with three others (Figure 19.47a). (b) Ten in parallel. (c) Three in parallel. (d) Two in parallel in series with four in parallel (Figure 19.47b). Figure 19.47 Reflect: There are other networks that also have the required resistance. An important additional consideration is the power dissipated by each resistor, whether the power dissipated by any resistor in the network exceeds the maximum power rating of the resistor. 19.48. Set Up: so the resistance is proportional to the length of the bar. The bars can be represented by the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
