Produced by the Institute of Physics, this learning episode helps students to investigate the effective resistance of circuits with components in series and parallel. The activities include demonstrations, worked examples and student investigations.

The activities are:
• combining lamps in series and parallel
• deriving formulae for series and parallel resistance combinations
• worked examples of resistors in a circuit
• predicting and measuring resistance
• practice calculations with answers provided
