    There is set of coils in 2 different way (Fig 1 & 2). For example, the resistance of one coil is 3 Ohm as shown in image. Please tell me the resistance in following way:

    Resistance between 1 & 2 in Fig 1 - ??
    Resistance between 1 & 3 in Fig 1 - ??

    Resistance between 1 & 2 in Fig 2 - ??
    Resistance between 1 & 3 in Fig 2 - ??

    If this is a Homework or examination question, post your best effort at answering.

    Try using simultaneous equations to solve your problem.

    It is not a homework or exam question. I have a stepper motor, I just want to know its winding setting. Please tell me the above resistances.

    Resistance between 1 & 2 in Fig 1 - 6 Ohms
    Resistance between 1 & 3 in Fig 1 - 6 Ohms

    Resistance between 1 & 2 in Fig 2 - 2.4 Ohms
    Resistance between 1 & 3 in Fig 2 - 3.6 Ohms

    Edit: Assuming the other pins are not connected

    Yes, all points (pins) in both figures are open. Please tell me how you calculate resistance in Fig-2?

    Thanks

    What is the make and model of this "stepper motor";)?

    Fig 2, pins 1 to 2 looks like this:

    Some simple series and parallel resistor calculations give the resistance between 1 and 2. You can do a similar diagram and calculations for 1 to 3.
