Resistors in Series

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Electrical

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

formula

\(R_t = R_1  +  R_2  +  R_3  + ...  +  R_n \)

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
