Parallel Resistors Calculator

<-- Enter Resistor Set

You entered a parallel resistor set of {-6,4,3,-9,2,8}
From the 6 numbers you entered, we want to 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:
Calculate R1 denominator piece
R1 = -6
1 ÷ R1 = -0.

Calculate R2 denominator piece
R2 = 4
1 ÷ R2 = 0.25

Calculate R3 denominator piece
R3 = 3
1 ÷ R3 = 0.33

Calculate R4 denominator piece
R4 = -9
1 ÷ R4 = -0.

Calculate R5 denominator piece
R5 = 2
1 ÷ R5 = 0.5

Calculate R6 denominator piece
R6 = 8
1 ÷ R6 = 0.125

Our denominator becomes
Denominator = -0. + 0.25 + 0.33 - 0. + 0.5 + 0.125
Denominator = 0.56

Our total Resistance is denoted below:
Rt =1
0.56

Rt = 6
