I'd like to know why in a parallel loop, the voltage, along with the current, isn't divided.
e.g. in this image from a youtube video
the voltage in parallel loop is the same across both resistors, for some reason this seems counter-intuitive to me.
Also later on in the video, the resistance was proportional to the voltage. I talked about this in class today, there was some debate on whether the voltage is inversely or directly proportional to the resistance. My argument was that because the resistance is higher, there must be less voltage going through at that point. So as resistance increases, voltage drops, showing an inverse proportion, but then someone in the class brought up the equation V=IR, in the circuits we've looked at, the current is seen to be the same throughout, in series, so it can be simplified to V=(K)R, V(proportion sign)R which would mean as Voltage went up, so would the resistance. Then we were talking about this in parallel, and things got more confusing, he spoke about the current not being the same across both resistors therefore we cant use the above rule, which I understood, but he didn't explain what actually happens. I'm getting confused writing this question.. perhaps I should do a few practice questions.
My teacher was worryingly also unsure. I Hope this question doesn't come across too ambiguously.
