I'm hoping someone can help me with understanding how we calculate Thevenin resistance total!! I'm struggling with parallel and series resistor calculations I just can not SEE which resistors are in parallel and which one's are in series!! Example you take the load resistor out and you have a point A and point B and on the end of point A there is now a Hanging resistor so would that resistor be in parallel with another resistor in the circuit? I guess It boils down to how do I know when a resistors is in parrelel and in series when calculating RThevenin in a circuit. if you have any example please post pictures here and explain how you got Thevenin RT
Thanks for the help
