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)

whaT next

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.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
