No, it is less. Use the formula:

1/R = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3...

Where R is the total (equivalent) resistance for the parallel circuit,and R1, R2, etc. are the individual resistance.

No, it is less. Use the formula:

1/R = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3...

Is total resistance less than smallest resistor in a series parallel circuit?

no


Why resistor should disconnected from the circuit when measured the value of resistor?

if not disconnected you will measure the resistance of the circuit in parallel with the resistor.


Which has more resistance- series or parallel circuits?

This is a weird question. It's like asking: "Which one is faster, a car or a truck ?" Any circuit has as much resistance as the components you decide to use when you're wiring it up. Doesn't matter whether it's a series or a parallel circuit. But we'll say that in a way, a series circuit has less resistance... for this reason: The resistance of a series circuit is more than the resistance of the largest single resistor in it, and if you add another resistor to it, the resistance goes even higher. The resistance of a parallel circuit is less than the resistance of the smallest single resistor in it, and if you add another resistor to it, the resistance goes even lower.


In a parallel circuit the smallest resistor is 500 ohms. What is the largest value this parallel circuit can have?

500 ohms.


When the resistor removed from a parallel connection of the circuit whether the resistance increase or decrease?

if we remove a resistor from the parallel connection the effective resistance value will be increased.


What happenes to the resistance of a parallel circuit if one resistor is removed?

The net resistance increases.


Are resistance is higher in the parallel circuit?

No. If you connect two or more resistors in parallel, the equivalent resistance of the circuit will be LESS than that of any individual resistor.


What is the total resistance of a 30-Ohm resistor and a 20-Ohm resistor in a parallel circuit?

The total resistance of a 30 ohm resistor in parallel with a 20 ohm resistor is 12 ohms. 1 / (1/30 + 1/20)


What happened to the total resistance when one resistor is shorted?

It depends on weather it is in a parallel or series circuit. In parallel the entire circuit it is in parallel with is shorted out. In series the total resistance decreases by the amount of the resistor that shorted out. Resistors usually open or change value with use.


A circuit has a 12 ohm and a 4 ohm resistor connected in parallel. What is total resistance in the circuit?

The total resistance is 3 ohms. Scroll down to related links and look at "Parallel Resistance Calculator".


How do resistance behave in parallel circuit?

The current through each resistor is equal to the voltage across it divided by its resistance ... exactly the same as in a series circuit.


How does voltage and resistance behave in a series and a parallel circuit?

The current through each resistor is equal to the voltage across it divided by its resistance for series and parallel circuits.
