Question

# Inductors in parallel can be combined just like resistors in parallel. (a) True (b) False

Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 2

For two resistors connected in parallel the equivalent resistance is given by,

$R_{eq} = \dfrac{R_1 R_2}{R_1+R_2}$

For two inductors connected in parallel the equivalent inductance is given by,

$L_{eq} = \dfrac{L_1 L_2}{L_1+L_2}$

$\therefore \;$ The way to combine parallel inductors is the same as the way to combine parallel resistors.
