#### Resistance in Series and Parallel

Resistors in series and in parallel can change the total resistance in a circuit. What is Resistance in series and parallel? Resistors in series and in parallel change the total resistance in a circuit. Special components called resistors are made especially for creating a precise quantity of resistance in a circuit. They are generally made of metal wire or carbon and constructed to maintain a stable steady amount of resistance over a wide range of environmental conditions. Resistance in series and parallel equation To calculate Resistance in series we use this equation. $R_t = {\mathit R_1 \text + \mathit R_2}$…
