## In the circuit the resistor 9 ohms is cancelled?

 by chessy1991 September 07, 2018 The bridge is balanced so the 9 ohm resistor has no voltage across it and sees no current. by mikerogerswsm September 07, 2018 explain more mathematically please... i thought that 8 ohms , and 12 ohms resistors are connected in series , and similarly the 4+6 ohms resistors .. then the whole are in parallel... by chessy1991 September 08, 2018 There is 1/3 volt across the 4 ohms and 1/3 volt across the 6 ohms. In my world 1/3 = 1/3. by mikerogerswsm September 08, 2018 I suppose if you want a formal process you need to replace the 4 ohm and 8 ohm resistor by the Thevenin equivalent and then do the same for the 6 ohm and the 12 ohm. You really need to draw your circuit with + at the top. Having it sideways does not help conceptualisation. Hope this helps. mike by mikerogerswsm September 08, 2018 https://www.circuitlab.com/editor/#?id=27j7dp3yy977 by mikerogerswsm September 09, 2018 Thanks a lot mike.It was helpful! by chessy1991 September 16, 2018
