Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could someone please help a noob like me understand the implications of having the 10MΩ resistor in the circuit i have uploaded. So far I've gathered it doesn't really influence the total resistance.

I thought it could decrease the current but adding a branch should slightly increase it since it add to the number multiplying the voltage in the formula..

And it doesn't help the pots handling the current when they go down in resistance, does it?

Thanks a lot,

antoine
