Mr. N. W. Lewis has shown† that if the values of three resistors are three consecutive terms of the geometric series in which each term is the sum of the three preceding terms, then the distribution of the 17 resistance values attainable by various combinations of the resistors is closely related to another geometric series with a common ratio not exceeding 6:5, covering approximately a decade in 16 steps. In this paper it is shown that as the number of resistors is increased the ratios between… Expand
