4.5 Putting it all to Together

There are two main kinds of connections; series and parallel. The resistance in the series connection has to be added in a fashion similar to electrical resistance i.e. every resistance has to be added plainly to the total resistance. There are many things that contribute to the resistance besides the regular length, i.e. bends, expansions, contractions etc. All these connections are of series type.
