I. INTRODUCTION :

Series-Parallel Connection is also known as the combined resistive circuits. This is the combination of series circuit and parallel circuit. Series circuit can be described as a circuit with only one path for charges to move along. This was also the common circuit connection in most rural areas. On the other hand, Parallel circuit can be described as circuit with multiple paths intended for charges to flow freely. This type of circuit connection was used in most urban areas around the country. In addition, series circuit components are connected end-to-end in a line to form a single path for electrons to flow while parallel circuit components are connected between the same set of electrically common points. But nowadays, Series-Parallel Connection is the most commonly used type of circuit connection in residential areas. This type of circuit connection is more advantageous because if one component of circuit is damaged then rest of the component of the circuit will perform their work without any disturbance. This can prevent fires if ever short circuits will occur. If ever short circuit will happen, only the series connection will breakdown or be affected and the parallel connection will still work. PICTORIAL DIAGRAM

A wiring diagram is a simplified conventional pictorial representation of an electrical circuit. It shows the components of the circuit as simplified shapes, and the power and signal connections between the devices.

SCHEMATIC DIAGRAM
A schematic diagram represents the elements of a system using abstract, graphic symbols rather than realistic pictures.

II. Body
A schematic diagram represents the elements of a system using abstract, graphic symbols rather than realistic pictures. It usually omits all details that are not relevant to the information the schematic is intended to convey, and may add unrealistic elements that aid comprehension. It is also a simplified representation of a system. Such schematics are often...
