We can find the through each resistor by two methods.

### Current Divider Rule

The first and direct method is by using the current divider principle. Let's consider the circuit with two parallel resistors:

The two formulas above explain that how two currents are calculated. Where It is the equivalent resistance and it can be calculated by using the formula:

Also, learn:

### Ohm's Law

The second method is useful when the input voltage is known.

Since voltage always remains same in parallel circuits, we can simply apply the Ohm's law to find the resistance current through both resistors.
