# Resistors in Parallel

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.

## formulas that use Resistors in Parallel

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

### 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
