# Parallel Resistors Calculator

## Enter Resistor Set

You entered a parallel resistor set of
{2,4,6,8,10}
calculate the resistance in ohms, denoted Rt

## The formula for this is as follows:

 Rt  = 1 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 + ... + 1/Rn

## Calculating our denominator piece, we get:

R1 = 2
1 ÷ R1 = 0.5

R2 = 4
1 ÷ R2 = 0.25

R3 = 6
1 ÷ R3 = 0.16666666666667

R4 = 8
1 ÷ R4 = 0.125

R5 = 10
1 ÷ R5 = 0.1

## Our denominator becomes

Denominator = 0.5 + 0.25 + 0.16666666666667 + 0.125 + 0.1
Denominator = 1.1416666666667

## Our total Resistance is denoted below:

 Rt  = 1 1.14167

Rt = 0.87591240875912
