# What is the condition for resistance in the branch to be parallel [closed]

What if the incoming current at one node not equal to the other, does the resistance in branch still parallel.

Eg: In the above circuit diagram how is 17.5 Ω resistor parallel with 5Ω and 2.5Ω resistor?

• The question doesn't make sense. In an electrical circuit there must be some nodes at which the current flow would be equal. Between any two of these such nodes there can be multiple branches with different current flows in each branch. – MaxW Jan 20 '16 at 5:53
• A diagram of the circuit you're asking about would make your question much more clear. – The Photon Jan 20 '16 at 6:02
