Students will learn how to analyze and solve problems involving circuits with resistors in parallel.
Explore how resistors and circuits are like water running through pipes.
Calculate the total resistance of multiple resistors wired in parallel, know how to decrease the total resistance by adding certain resistors in parallel.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Resistors in Parallel.
Do the general trends of parallel circuits apply in regards to traffic on toll bridges?
This study guide is an overview of circuits and circuit diagrams. It discusses voltage, current, Ohm's law, loop rule, and junction rule and reviews how to solve resistors in series, resistors in parallel, capacitors in series, and capacitors in parallel.
