Here are the most common parallel configurations of resistors (R), inductors (L), and capacitors (C). These are the
basic forms, and all other parallel combinations can be reduced to one of the following forms. For instance, if you
have three capacitors in parallel with two inductors in parallel with two resistors, you can reduce the parallel resistors
to a single equivalent resistor, and the same with capacitors and inductors. You will end up with the Parallel RLC
form at the lower left.
my real-world example of how parallel resistances in water flow behave like parallel resistances in electrical circuits.
