Students will learn how to analyze and solve problems involving circuits with resistors in parallel.
Learn about the analysis of parallel circuits in the context of a realistic household circuit.
Explore a different way of thinking about electricity as a way to become familiar with the concept of potential, current, and resistance
Learn about different ways you can wire an electric circuit, and how the brightness of the lights depends on how they are configured.
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.
