    Hello, could anybody tell me how to calculate the bridge resistance of a wheatstone bridge?
    Thanks

    It depends on the resistance of the resistive elements.

    For instance, in a strain gauge bridge, all four strain gauges will probably be 350 ohms. The bridge arrangement places them in series pairs, with the pairs in parallel. The resulting resistance is 350 ohms.
