I know the current divider rule. I want to know the Voltage Diver RUle in parrellel circuits.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose we have 4 resistors of 2 Ohms in parrellel. The source is 10V. That means the total resistance is 1/2 Ohms and Tje current 20 Amps.If the current divies equally we have 5 amps thhrough each branch. 5 amps on each 2 Ohm resisitor means that there are 10V going across each resisto. But that doesn't add up because there is 10V at the source and the makes 40V across all the resistors. SO doe sthe voltage divide or stay at 10V for each resistor?
