In this Unit, we consider only Scenario 1. EQUIVALENT RESISTANCE OF RESISTORS CONNECTED IN SERIESLet us review and expand the results of Unit 1-1-5 for the series connection of resistors. Figure 1. When two or more resistors are connected in series,the same current flows through all of them, and the total voltage is divided,as explained in Unit 1-1-5. üThe equivalent resistance of two or more resistors connected in series equals the sum of their resistances: oFor 2 resistors in series (see Equation 1 in Unit 1-1-5): ࠵?!"#$%=࠵?!"#$%࠵?!+࠵?!Thus Book Page 62
