Hi, The Circuit I am referring to is a simple series circuit with the resistance of the wire is negligible. I am confused about the fact that if we increase the resistance of a resistor in a circuit, the PD across the component will also increase. From my understanding I thought increasing the resistance of the component will increase the overall resistance so the overall current will decrease. If the voltage is proportional to current, the the voltage should increase; this explanation seem to be wrong. I tried to search this up on google, didn't get a proper answer, can someone explain this to properly please ( without the water analogy) ?
