"Resistors resist the passage of current through them." Then why the current through each resistor same in series combination? Suppose 'I' current is passing through a system of two resistors connected in series. 1. Won't the first resistor - which is directly connected to the positive terminal of the battery - allow a current with less magnitude to pass through, as compared to the original current with magnitude 'I'? 2. And that the second resistor will not get the current with magnitude 'I'- rather- something of lesser value?
