How do I calculate parallel resistors?

Answer Inverting Resistor ValuesInvert the Ohm value of each individual resistor. For instance, if you have three parallel resistors that are 2, 4, and 5 Ohms, inverted they would become 1/2, 1/4, and 1/5... Read More »

Top Q&A For: How do I calculate parallel resistors

How do I calculate resistance of parallel resistors?

Invert the resistance values of each resistor. For instance, a 2 Ohm resistor becomes 1/2, and an 8 Ohm resistor becomes 1/8.Add up the inverted resistance values. For instance, 1/2 + 1/8 = 5/8Inv... Read More »

How do I add parallel resistors?

List the values of the resistors that are in parallel. An example set would be a 10, 20 and 30 ohm resistor. Add the reciprocals of these numbers: 1/10 + 1/20 + 1/30 = 11/60. Take the result and t... Read More »

Equations for Parallel Resistors?

Resistors absorb voltage at one side so a reduced voltage is present at the other side. Since they reduce voltage, they are used in many electronic circuits. One common example is a cell phone char... Read More »
