- Resistors in Parallel 6 answers
This question has been asked before but I don't understand the answers to it. They say that by adding a resistor, it provides an additional path for current to flow and decreases the resistance. I understand how an additional path decreases resistance but how is adding another resistor adding an additional path? For example, say a parallel circuit branches off into two paths. You then add resistors to those two paths. How does that decrease the resistance? It isn't adding a new path?
