Unformatted text preview: tails directly connected together are in parallel, and they can be reduced to one resistor using the equivalent resistance equation for resistors in parallel. 2. Two resistors connected together so that the tail of one is connected to the head of the next, with no other path for the current to take along the line connecting them, are in series and can be reduced to one equivalent resistor. Finally, remember that for resistors in series, the current is the same for each resistor, and for resistors in parallel, the voltage is the same for each one....
