Normally a current would take a simpler route, hence why a resistor in parallel with a short gets no share in current. Again two equal resistors in parallel get equal share in current.
These questions just crossed my mind:
- What happens when you have two shorts in parallel? Do they get equal share as well?
- Again, what happens when I place an inductor in parallel with a short? Would the inductor become a short (eventually)? You know how inductor behave under DC.
What others have to say?
