Resistors in Parallel

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Electrical

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
