Homework Help: Net Resistance in a Circuit

  1. Sep 19, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find the net resistance in the circuit. each resistance is 3.3 kOhms. see attached

    2. Relevant equations
    series r=r1+r2+r3...
    parallel 1/r=1/r1+1/r2...

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I tried taking into account the short circuit and just adding two. Also tried resistance of 2 in parallel and 4 in series.

    Welcome to Physics Forums. :smile:

    To start, can you find 2 resistors that are either in series or in parallel? Replace those 2 resistors with a single, equivalent resistor and redraw the circuit.
