## How to identify whether resistors are in parallel or series connection easily

parallel or series of resistors depends on the total values ​​of a resistance

resistance of a series greater than the parallel

check the connectivity of the resistors at one end of the resistor with the other end of another resistance using of a multimeter.

If all the starting ends of all resistors are identical, its parallel.

if they continuously connect the head to tail pattern, then it is in series.

for a2a,

if you know the equivalent resistance of the circuit, you can easily predict whether the connected resistor is in series or in parallel. For example, if the equivalent resistance is lower than the individual resistance, the combination is parallel. if the equivalent resistance is greater than the individual resistance, the combination is series. However, in some cases it is difficult to predict certain combinations of series and parallel series.

I hope it helps

for a2a !!!

Since you are not specific to your problem, I write the whole possible situation:

if you want to identify resistors in series or in parallel in any reference model drawn on paper. you just have to look at the starting and ending points of the resistance network. if there is a junction point between at least two resistors, then this network is in parallel; if there is no junction point in the whole network, it will be in series.

If you want to identify resistors in series or in parallel in any reference model drawn on a printed circuit board, you must analyze the network using a digital multimeter. in this case, you must check the sorting between the resistors. If you are a professional PCB designer, you can simply identify the network by following the routing path.

good luck 🙂
