Resistors in parallel

Resistors are said to be in parallel when they are placed side by side and their corresponding ends joined together (Fig. 35.6). The same potential difference will thus be applied to each, but they will share the main current in the circuit. We will suppose that the main current I divides into II, 12, and 13 through the resistors RI’ R2′ and R3 respectively and that the common potential difference across them is V. If R is the combined resistance we may write
