Unformatted text preview: Then measure the resistance of two, three, and four resistors in series. Does the formula work? 3. The general rule for finding the equivalent resistor for a number of resistors in parallel is 1 R eq = 1 R 1 + 1 R 2 + 1 R 3 + ... 4. Using your multimeter, measure the resistance of two, three, and four resistors in parallel. Does the formula work? 5. Using your data from E11 for two resistors wired in series, calculate the power supplied by the power supply and the power dissipated in each resistor. 6. Using your data from E11 for two resistors wired in parallel, calculate the power supplied by the power supply and the power dissipated in each resistor. 7. How is the supplied power related to the power dissipated in all the resistors?...
