Shouldn't the current passing through a resistor be lesser than that which passes through a circuit?
My understanding is that since Current = Charges/Time. If there exists a resistance to the flow of charges, then that must mean the charges slow down, meaning that more time is required to pass through a point. So, the current should then decrease. But, since this opposition to the flow of charges doesn't exist in the ENTIRE circuit, it should really only decrease the current in the resistor, right?
Am I confusing the resistance of the resistor with the resistance of the wire? Any help will be appreciated! Thanks a bunch for lending me some of your time :D
