# Concept question: Current

## Homework Statement

Hi. This isn't exactly a homework question but a concept question. So when resistors are connected in series, I know that I total= I1=I2=I3...etc.....

but if the resistors are different i don't understand how the current can be the same, even if they are in series...

like, if you have a 2R resistor and a 9R resistor, connected in series, why would the current through each resistor be the same? Why wouldnt the current be less for the 9R resistor??? I thought greater resistance meant less current!!!

i just DON'T understand!!!!
