Parallel Resistances

Project 5: Resistors

When resistors are connected in parallel, the combination has an equivalent conductance that is the sum of the conductance of the individual resistors. The user will create a 5 kΩ resistor from the resistors available in Digilent's® Analog Parts Kit.

Parallel Resistors

Current Dividers

If the total current into a set of parallel resistors is known, there is an easy way to determine the current through any individual resistor in the parallel combination. The appropriate formula is called the current divider formula, since the total current is divided among the individual resistors.
