Home Module Resistors in Series and Parallel

Resistors in Series and Parallel

Overview:


When two resistors are connected in series, the overall resistance increases, and as a result, the current in the circuit decreases. When two resistors are connected in parallel, the overall resistance decreases and as a result the current in the circuit increases.

Learning Objectives:


After completing this module, you will be able to:
- Explain a series connection of two resistors.
- Explain a parallel connection of two resistors.
