I was always taught that electricity flows through the path of least resistance.
The problem that I'm having is that I've seen/done this: Take 3 wires have one wire break off into the 2 other wire (like a fork in the road) and put electricity through the first single wire.
Now I take a multi-meter and test the end of each of the wires that forked from the original wire. Both wires show current/energy.
How can this be possible, this happens even if I use 2 wires with different conductivity.
The ending output might differ between the wires, but both wires are getting energy, even though one of them is more resistant.
Can someone please explain this to me?
