# Effective resistance

mercury
hey i have a problem with effective reisitance of a circuit

what is the current in a circuit containing a 10V battery , the resistance consists of a wire in the shape of a regular hexagon (all sides equal) with all the diagonals drawn. each side of the hexagon and each portion of the diagonal has a resistance R .
(say the hexagon is ABCDEF and O is the pt. of intersection of all the diagonals then resistance of AB = resistance of BC= ....= resistance of OA = resistance of OC ...)
i hope u understand..i would display a diagram if i could..but right now i am not able to..nevertheless , would appreciate any help.

try to rearrange all the resistors
just like with a cube of resistors, where you end up with (R//R//R)+(R//R//R//R//R//R)+(R//R//R)

do u mean..that i should try and figure out series and parallel connections..if that's what u mean..i did try.but i was'nt able to identify pts. having the same potential ,which is what one ought to do...isn't it ?

is there anyway u could explain what should be done a little more in detail?
