Resistors in Parallel

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Electrical Engineering

No matter how many resistors in parallel there are, two or ten, just specify the number of resistors and the resistance value for each one.

formula

\(\frac {1} {R_t} =  \frac {1} {R_1}  +  \frac {1} {R_2}  +  \frac {1} {R_3}  + ...  + \frac {1} {R_n} \)

Where:

\(R_t\) = total resistance

\(R_1\) = resistance of first resistor

\(R_2\) = resistance of second resistor

\(R_3\) = resistance of third resistor

\(R_n\) = resistance of number resistor
