help with electronic basic question 1 - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

am in need of this info
if there is a 20v p.s going thru a 10 ohm resistor (in series) then go to 2- 20 ohm resistors in parallel. whats the voltage drop across the 20ohm resistors.
i know the same voltage is applied across each branch so would you find the total resistence and treat it as a series circuit (another 10 ohms)

You are correct. The 2 20 ohm resistors in paralell would equall a 10 ohm resistor. So the voltage drop across each of the 10 ohm resistors would be the same.
