- Hi all,

The learning process never ends, I am still very much a beginner, so

chuckle if you like, however, I am having a tad bit of trouble

remembering how to find input resistance on a multistage amplifier.

My issue is, actualy punching the formula into a calculator.

IE: 100k in paralell with 50k...

Am i correct with '100(exp 3) X-1 + 50(exp 3) X-1' ?

If this is right, my numbers certainly are not coming up correct. If

you can help, I would truly appreciate it.

Thanx a million gang....

you want (100,000 * 50,000) / (100,000 + 50,000).

A more intuitive way to do it if the numbers are neat: A 50k resistor

is just 2 100k resistors in parallel. So, we have a total of 3 100k

resistors in parallel and that is just 100k / 3 or 33.3k ohms.

you need to do (100(exp 3) X-1 + 50(exp 3) X-1) X-1.

What you got is the conductance in simens, if you add the last reciprocal

it will be resistance in ohms.

For series add resistances, for parallel add conductances.

The formula richard gave will work as well of course, but it's only for

two resistors and you need to type each value twice, so i never use it

myself.

The mistake doing it that way is you have to multiply the result by the function "x-

1" to turn it up the right way.

When the are only two resistors in parallel use this formula R1 xR2 /(R1+R2)= ANS

Also in both methods if both resistors are kilohms then ignor the (exp3) bit

altogether and just work direckly in kilohms.
