## FAQs

Parallel resistors are much smaller than the smallest parallel resistor. In a parallel network, any two points can be connected in a way that results in the same overall resistance. Resistors are a type of electrical circuit and they're used in almost every electronic circuit. There are resistors that have only one input and one output, which is made up of resistive elements such as wires or capacitors.

Parallel resistors do not each get the total current. Instead they short out when the current through them is less than their total resistance. In a parallel circuit, each resistor in series with an active element causes the total current to be divided by the resistances of all of them, and this is what causes a change in voltage across them. The current entering a parallel combination of resistors is equal to the sum of the current through each resistor in parallel.

In this Tutorial, we will study the resistance of resistors in parallel. Parallel circuits are one of the easiest forms of circuits to understand, and a parallel circuit is a circuit in which it is possible for a current to pass through an element of the circuit without changing its voltage. Current passing through a parallel circuit can also be easily controlled by using potential differences between two or more elements.
