Parallel Resistors Calculator

Enter Resistor Set


  

You entered a parallel resistor set of
{-6,4,3,-9,2,8}
calculate the resistance in ohms, denoted Rt

The formula for this is as follows:

Rt  =  1
  1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 + ... + 1/Rn

Calculating our denominator piece, we get:

R1 = -6
1 ÷ R1 = -0.16666666666667

R2 = 4
1 ÷ R2 = 0.25

R3 = 3
1 ÷ R3 = 0.33333333333333

R4 = -9
1 ÷ R4 = -0.11111111111111

R5 = 2
1 ÷ R5 = 0.5

R6 = 8
1 ÷ R6 = 0.125

Our denominator becomes

Denominator = -0.16666666666667 + 0.25 + 0.33333333333333 - 0.11111111111111 + 0.5 + 0.125
Denominator = 0.93055555555556

Our total Resistance is denoted below:

Rt  =  1
  0.93055555555556








What is the Answer?

Rt = 1.0746268656716
