V=I*R

if you can't figure that equation out, i would probably drop pre-med and maybe college.

I am not in college yet, ok i'll give the question a try, Yay or Nay me. Is it because as the resistor gets larger it allows more current to go through therefore fewer disruptions

As resistance increases, current decreases. Just like fluid flow through pipes, current takes the path of least resistance. For Ohm's Law, however, you can hold any of the variables constant and determine how the others will be effected.

dude...

u need help man...
and sdn is not a tutoring center for high-school peoples.

If you can't figure out the answer from V=IR, I don't know what to tell u. maybe the sciences is not for u.

Resistance means something that stops/prevents. So when you increase resistance, u stop current from going thru.

Think of a river, where water is current. If you keep putting logs (resistance) in one part of the river (and so build a damn), less water (current) can get through. So current decreases. V=IR.

what the heck does "resistor increases" mean, length of resistor, or increased resistance?

resistor increases? try english increases.
