It depends on the resistance of the three resistors. Total resistance in a series circuit is the sum of the individual resistances.
Three 60-ohm resistors connected in series have a total effective resistance of 180 ohms.
Two 100-ohm resistors connected in parallel have a combined effective resistance of 50 ohms.
A parallel circuit is a circuit in which the resistors are arranged with their heads connected together and their tails connected together. in parallel combination voltage remains constant and current varies . The total resistance of a set of resistors in parallel is found by adding up the reciprocals of the resistance values..
If three 15-ohm resistors are connected in parallel, then their net effective resistance is 5 ohms.It makes no difference what they're connected to, or if they're connected to anything, or whetheror not you have any plans to ever connect them to anything.
Adding resistors in series will cause the total resistance to go up. RSERIES = summation1-N(RN)
The total resistance of resistors in series is simply the sum of the resistance values of those resistors. If the resistors are identical, then you can multiply the resistance of one of them by the number of resistors in the circuit.
If the resistors are connected in series, the total resistance will be the sum of the resistances of each resistor, and the current flow will be the same thru all of them. if the resistors are connected in parallel, then the current thru each resistor would depend on the resistance of that resistor, the total resistance would be the inverse of the sum of the inverses of the resistance of each resistor. Total current would depend on the voltage and the total resistance
Four 100 ohm resistors in parallel have an effective resistance of 25 ohms.
The equivalent resistance of multiple resistors connected in series is the sum of theindividual resistances.(10 + 60 + 50) = 120 ohms for this particular trio of resistors in series.It makes no difference what battery they may be connected to, or if they're connected toany power supply at all.
In series the same current goes through both and the resistance is doubled, 120 ohms.
The total effective resistance of resistors in series is the sum of the individual resistances.Three 60-ohm resistors in series have a total effective resistance of (60 + 60 + 60) = 180 ohms.
A simple circuit has three resistors connected in series. The resistors are 14 ohms 12 ohms and 9 ohms. What is the total resistance of the circuit?
Short circuit Req=0
Two 100 ohm resistors in parallel have an equivalent resistance of 50 ohms. RPARALLEL = 1 / Summation1toN (1 / RN)
A resistance 'network' consists of a number of resistors connected together in series, or in parallel, or in series-parallel, or as a complex circuit. A 'complex' circuit is one that is not series, parallel, or series-parallel.
The resistance will be: 1/(1/100+1/80)+100=144.4444444444
The sum of the resistances of the individual resistors in the circuit will be the equivalent resistance or total resistance of that series circuit.
Resistors in series have greater resistance than those in parallel.
