### Discussion :: Parallel Circuits - Filling the Blanks (Q.No.2)

2.

As additional resistors are connected to a parallel circuit, the total resistance will ___.

 [A]. increase [B]. increase by the value of the resistor being connected [C]. decrease [D]. remain unchanged

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Divya said: (Sep 16, 2011) It will decrease only because whenever we added resistors in parallel resistance value decreases.

 Pasti A!! said: (Oct 17, 2011) How about it connected in series?

 Shaik Moulali said: (Nov 26, 2013) What about in connected in series?

 Gmanoj said: (Sep 17, 2014) If a resistor connected connected additionally the resistance of circuit will increase. Since, we know that Rt=r1+r2+r3...Rn.

 Nani said: (Nov 25, 2016) If an additional resistors are connected it will be increased by that value of resistors. Since, Rt =R1 + R2 + R3+ ........ Rn.

 Sandeep said: (Dec 19, 2016) If an additional resistor is added in a parallel circuit, the total resistance will decrease. Since, Rt = 1/R1 + 1/R2+.....1/R4.

 Aneesha Poojary said: (Oct 29, 2018) If we connect additional resistance in series 2 the parrallel circuit resistance value increases but if additional resistance connected in parrallel resistance value decreases.
