Best answer


When current flows through theresistorthen speed of electrons (which actually is current) slows down. Now there is potential across the resistor drops this drop is due to the fact that the energy needs to be maintained of electrons and potential is used up to increase the kinetic energy (that is current) to it’s previous value.

  • Does current flow through a resistor in parallel?

  • Your question appears to contain an erroneous assumption. Assuming a constant voltage, the amount of current that flows through a resistor does not depend on whether there are other paths in parallel. Electrons flow through all of the available paths, each independently according to Ohm’s law.

  • What is the relationship between current and voltage in a resistor?

  • This means current in = current out. A resistor is an imperfect conductor, which means current cannot flow through it effortlessly. The effort required to push the charges through the resistor is supplied by voltage. Work expended per unit of time is equal to effort x flow which in this case is voltage x current, or watts.

  • What is the work of a resistor?

  • A resistor is an imperfect conductor, which means current cannot flow through it effortlessly. The effort required to push the charges through the resistor is supplied by voltage. Work expended per unit of time is equal to effort x flow which in this case is voltage x current, or watts.

  • How much current will flow through a circuit with high resistance?

  • Current will flow through all possible paths no matter how high the resistance. The amount of current flowing through any given path will depend upon voltage and resistance.
