Homework Help: Parallel Circuits

  1. Mar 22, 2004 #1
    Hey!
    I had to do 3 labs tonight and I got stuck on one of the last questions! I was wondering if anyone could help me. Here's the question: As more resistors are added in parallel to an existing circuit, what happens to the toal circuit current? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    When you add resistors in parallel, what happens to the total resistance? Does it get bigger or smaller?
