my question is that i have two resistors that are combined to form an equivalent resistance of 1000 ohms. Now there are two common resistors rated at 500 plus/minus 50 ohms and two others rated at 2000 ohms plus/minus 5%. I need to know what combo (series or parallel) would provide the smaller uincertainty in the equivalent 1000 ohm resistance???(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
