The number of earthing pits depends on the soil resistance.
We may require earth resistance of 1ohm or 3 ohms at the
most. To get this we will have to install at least 2 pits
and as per parallel formula i.e. 1/r1+1/r2+1/r3= 1/R. We
have to keep on increasing the number of earth pits till we
get the required value for R=1 or 3 as per requirement.

calculated on the basis of PYTHAGAROUS statement.
In a right angled triangle, the sum of sqr.root of the
adjacent and opposite sides is equal to the sqr root of the
In the question asked the height is 35 meters. based on the
above we have to calculate the required datas.
