Resistors in a cube

  1. Mar 23, 2003 #1

    Can anyone solve this? Or show me in detail what to do? A complete step-by-step solution would be preferable though. Thanks!

    To do this one, simply redraw it in a way you can visualise it.

    Line them up in sets of parallel and series resistors with A on the left side and B on the right.

    Then go through and start using the rules for finding out resistances across parallel and series R.

    Give it a shot, post what you've done, and we'll be more than happy to help you out.
