why resistance is less in parallel resistors series?
In series , equivalent resistance is equal to the sum total of individual resistances, so it is more (Rs= R1+R2+...); whereas in parallel the reciprocal of equivalent resistance equal to the sum total of reciprocal of individual resistances, so its value decreases. (Rp = 1/R1 + 1/R2+....)
