Resistors in parallel.? Answered

If batteries can be wired in parallel, how about resistors?

You can wire almost any basic component in series and in parallel ways

Yes, you can connect them in parallel, but you have to take into account that the resistors in series are added as R1+R2 and the resistors in parallel are added as (1/R1)+(1/R2) so they usually end up giving smaller resistance values

Resistors can be wired in parallel too. In such cases, the total resistance is calculated by this formula:
1/R = 1/r1 + 1/r2 + 1/r3.....1/rn
