# Parallel Arrangement of Resistors

Lesson Progress
0% Complete

Resistors are said to be parallel if they are placed side by side with their ends joined together in such a way that the potential difference across each resistors is the same but the current in each resistor is not the same.

The total resistance of the resistor is given by the formula;

$$\frac{1}{R} = \frac{1}{R_1} + \frac{1}{R_2} + \frac{1}{R_3}$$
