Basic Laws of Circuits Equivalent Resistance: Resistors in combination. By combination we mean we have a mix of series and Parallel. This is illustrated below. R 1 R 2 R 3 R 4 R 5 R eq Figure 5.4: Resistors In Series – Parallel Combination To find the equivalent resistance we usually start at the output of the circuit and work back to the input . 4
