    One question, the watts for each resistor stays the same ?

    Thanks for your time. Clear explanation.

    Thank You. You should determine the power rating of a resistor by calculating the power that it will dissipate. the equation for this is:

    P = I2 x Ror Power dissipated by Resistor = Current² x Resistancee.g. 0.2A² x 10Ω = 0.4Watts

    Simplest way to put it: (0.2 x 0.2) x 10
