## Puzzle: A Cube Of Resistors, Updated With Links To Solutions

I posted this puzzle a few days ago: Consider 12 identical resistors connected to form a cube. That is, each resistor lies on the edge of a cube, and there is an electrical connection joining three resistors at each of the cube’s eight vertices. What is the effective resistance between two vertices across a body … Read more
