Parallel Resistors

Chipa Thomas Maimela‘s insight:

When we add resistors in parallel to a circuit:

There are more paths for current to flow which ensures that the current splits across the different paths.

The voltage is the same across the resistors. The voltage across the battery in the circuit is equal to the voltage across each of the parallel resistors:
