I came up with this question as I tried to extend the problem of maximizing the resistance in a circle by selecting two points where to connect the electrodes. The solution for this problem is obvious - antipodal points, however, naturally my other problem is more complex, and I don't know how to go about solving it.
All the rings are connected at all intersection points and all have equal crossectional area and density.
The problem: Where would you connect two electrodes so that the effective resistance of the circuit would be maximal?
I know you could try doing some complex mathematics with Kirchhoff laws, but is there a simpler way?
