CIRCUITS |

remarkably, in a parallel circuit the greater the number of loads connected, the more the total resistance decreases! this happens due to the fact that, in effect, each resistor in a parallel circuit draws current from the source voltage independently. mathematically speaking, the reciprocal of the equivalent resistance of all the loads linked in parallel is equal to the sum of the reciprocal of all the individual resistors. (again, measured in ohms). but, let's reserve the actual presentation of this formula for later. | ||
