Components in a combination circuit

  1. Feb 17, 2015 #1
    In a combination circuit, with 2 components, if the voltages across each is the same, why must the resistance of the components be equal to each other?

    It doesn't unless the currents through the two components are equal as well.
    Then is simply Ohm's law.
