resistances in parallel

A single tube of cross sectional area Aw has a resistance Rw. How many smaller tubes of cross sectional area 1/2 Aw would be needed to construct a parallel network such that the total resistance of the network equals Rw?

Solution Preview

As the resistance is inversely proportional to the area of cross section, a tube of half the ...
