Circuits with series and parallel wiring

  • Thread starter r_swayze

Four identical 5.00 Ω resistors are joined and form the four sides of a square. (a) What is the resistance between points A and B? (b) What is the resistance between A and C?

The answer to (a) is 3.75 and (b) is 5, but I have no idea how to get those answers. Can somebody help?

Do you know the equivalent resistance of the series and parallel combination of resistances? It not, search the web or the text book.
