Physics

- The current is the same in every resistor; this current is equal to that in the battery.
- The sum of the voltage drops across the individual resistors is equal to the voltage rating of the battery.
- The overall resistance of the collection of resistors is equal to the sum of the individual resistance values,

- The voltage drop is the same across each parallel branch.
- The sum of the current in each individual branch is equal to the current outside the branches.
- The equivalent or overall resistance of the collection of resistors is given by the equation
1/Req = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 ...
