How do I calculate parallel resistors?

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 »

How do I calculate resistors in a circuit?

Divide the voltage across a resistor by the current passing through it to calculate the strength of the resistor. For instance, consider a resistor in a circuit with a 1 Volt power supply with 0.5 ... Read More »

How do I calculate resistors in a triangle?
