Wiring circuits in parallel confusion
I'm very new to electronics, but in knowing Ohms law from school (I=V/R) you know as resistance goes up, (if voltage is constant) current must decrease. And to work out the total resistance in a series circuit, you add the resistance of each component together.
So when you wire them in a parallel circuit, you use reciprocals of the resistance (So the equation is 1/Total resistance=1/ResistorA + 1/ResistorB, etc). But going by this logic, a bigger resistor would equal a bigger current (Because obviously 1/2 > 1/3).
Can anyone explain why this is?
