Homework Help: Electric Circuits

  1. Mar 23, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Three 66.0 Ω resistors are connected across the sides of an equilateral triangle ABC as shown in the figure.
    What is the equivalent resistance between any two points AB, BC, AC of this circuit?



    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I dont understand. They give me a triangle with the same resistance at each point, and there asking for the resistance between any of the two points

    Do you see any series or parallel combinations you could make?
     
  4. Mar 23, 2010 #3
    Series

    Well, make them! What problems are you having? Show some work and ask questions.

    I cant show any work because I dont understand what im being asked to find. If there series, to find the equivalent resistance you just add them because there series

    you need to find the equivalent resistance by making one series and one parallel combination (after the series one).

    Is this a delta of resistors by chance? Something like: /_\ with a resistor on each wire of the delta?
