Here is the basic formula to find the ratio of maximum to minimum resistance
We have n wires of each of resistance R
To get maximum resistance we need to connect them in series
To get minimum resistance we need to connect the wires in parallel
Equivalent resistance in parallel
Thus ratio of maximum to minimum resistance =
To find out more about resistance and Ohm's Law, check out the Grade 11/12 Physics subject guide accessed through the 9-12 Zone tab in the UCDSB Virtual Learning Commons. There are a number of links to great sites such as Khan Academy, Crash Course Physics and Bozeman Science the give video explanations.
