Parallel Resistance Calculator

- calculator to calculate parallel resistance values when two resistors are used in parallel

This parallel resistance calculator provides an easy method for calculating the resistance of two resistors placed in parallel.

Although a parallel resistor value calculation is not difficult, using this parallel resistor calculator simplifies the calculation rather than using paper and calculators.

Simply enter values of the parellal resistors in ohms, Ω or kΩ, etc in the two input boxes, but note all values must be in the same units. The parallel resistor calculator will then provide the overall resistance of the two resistors in the same units as the input.

calculating the resistance of two resiators in parallel is amde easy using this resiatance calculator

Enter the two values for the resistors, R1 and R2, and the total resistance will be calculated for the parallel resistors.

Consumer preferences drive the silicon industry. Each generation of mobile phones has to be thinner than the last. The same scenario happens with computers, as consumers demand more speed. These market forces have led to further and further shrinkage in silicon geometries, as consumer device manufacturers try to push the boundaries of silicon performance.
