I was looking at an explanation for why parallel resistors have less resistance:
One of the answers involved simulating parallel resistors as a black box and it made sense.
If you have a "black box" with two wires connected and are told that there is a resistor inside you could measure voltage applied and current drawn to determine the internal resistance.
Now consider that there are TWO resistors inside and that they are in parallel. Again apply 10V and you will see that 2 mA (not 1 mA as before) is drawn. 1mA will flow through 1 resistor and 1 mA will flow through the other resistor.
The rest of the answer uses Ohm's law to explain why the parallel resistors must therefore have a certain equivalent resistance.
This seems to imply that resistors have a "pulling" force to draw electrons, which they definitely do not (since the whole point of a resistor is to resist the flow of electrons, right?).
But this answer does make sense. So why does adding more resistors result in more current being pulled?
