Basic DC circuits.

-Resistor-Needed so the power from sockets does not blow up whatever you are trying to connect
-Capacitor-Good for bursts (triggers)
-Voltage drop across capacitors is same as voltage drop across the two connecting wires.
-Resistors in parallel can be measured by adding the reciprocals of the resistance (To find Phantom Resistor Strength). Take portion of Phantom Resistor equivalent to the total resistance of one of the resistors to find the total current going through that resistor.
-Capacitors in Parallel act like Resistors in series, add the strengths.
-To find the voltage drop across individual components, add the total resistance of each piece, the portion of the total resistance the object uses is equivalent to the portion of voltage used.
