Expert Answer:

Connecting different components across a power supply alters the current flowing into an external circuit.

The effective resistance of components joined in series or parallel can be derived using the laws governing the behaviour of current and voltage in circuits.


For resistances in series For resistances in parallel



Once the effective resistance of the components connected to a power supply has been determined the total current taken from the power supply can be calculated.
