(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

You are given a black box with three terminals, as shown below. The box is known to contain five 1-ohm resistors.

B

A

C

(d rectangle cannot b seen but jus imagine d rectange wid d terminal A on left side and B and C on d right side)

Using an ohm-meter, you measure the resistance between the terminals to be the following:

A - B: 1.5 ohms

B - C: 3 ohms

A - C: 2.5 ohms

Determine the configuration of the five resistors inside the box.

2. Relevant equations

i jus noe d basic eqns 4 solvin resistances in !! n series.

3. The attempt at a solution

resistances b/w B and C r 3 resistances in series and b/w A and B could like 1 in series n 2 in parallel,b/w Aand C could be 2 in series n 2 in parallel but d total resistances r jus 5. help !!!!!
