A 3-ohm resistor and a 6-ohm resistor are connected in parallel across a 9-volt battery. Which statement best compares the potential difference across each resistor? (1) The potential difference across the 6-ohm resistor is the same as the potential difference across the 3-ohm resistor. (2) The potential difference across the 6-ohm resistor is twice as great as the potential difference across the 3-ohm resistor. (3) The potential difference across the 6-ohm resistor is half as great as the potential difference across the 3-ohm resistor. (4) The potential difference across the 6-ohm resistor is four times as great as the potential difference across the 3-ohm resistor.

(1) The potential difference across the 6-ohm resistor is the same as the potential difference across the 3-ohm resistor. When resistors are connected in parallel, they have the same potential difference across them.
