Why the Resistance in Parallel is less than the Resistance in series ?
Asked by | 25th Oct, 2009, 08:53: PM
Net resistance in series is the sum of individual resistances whereas in parallel net resistance is equal to the reciprocal of the sum of reciprocals of individual resistances; hence resistance in series is more than the resistance in parallel. Following equations will make it more clear.
Rseries= R1 + R2 + R3 +......
Rparallel= [ 1 /R1 +1/ R2 + 1 /R3 +......]-1
