Ohm's Law Series-ParallelCircuits Calculation
To end up the discussion of Series-ParallelCircuits, I would like to post this last one remaining topic which is about Ohm's Law of Series-ParallelCircuits for currents and voltages. I did not even mentioned in my previous topics on how to deal with...
This shows that in series combination equivalent resistance of circuit is always greater than individual resistances. Characteristics:
1. If there are more than one path for the flow of current in a circuit then the combination of resistances is called Parallel Combination...
3. Series and parallelcircuits serve different purposes in households
1. Identify the difference between series and parallelcircuitsSeries is when the components line up after one another, thus there is only 1 path. In parallel there are multiple paths.
Advantages of using parallel...
batteries by connecting them in different ways in the circuit. It does not matter where in the circuit the batteries are placed, it is how they are placed with respect to each other that is important.Basically, they can be connected in series or in parallel. The resultant voltage and current can be...
points, as shown in figure 3-16. If this were done, each meter would be found to indicate the same value of current.

Current in a ParallelCircuit
Ohm's law states that the current in a circuit is inversely proportional to the circuit resistance...
Series-Parallel Combinations
Many "real life"circuits are a combination of elements in series and parallel. It is not possible to solve these circuits by direct application of these basic rules. However, adding some simple procedures for reducing the circuit to a simple series or parallelcircuit...
Series and ParallelCircuits
Purpose and Procedure:
You are to design, build, and test series and parallelcircuits. Make observations as you test your circuits. Make sure you use proper electrical schematic symbols in your drawings.
Hypothesis:
Come up with your own.

Electricity Part II -Questions
1. Explain the two methods of connecting resistors in circuits with the help of circuit diagrams.
2. Write the formulae to calculate the effective resistances when resistors are connected (a) in series and (b) in parallel.
3. How is the total...
There are no advantages of disadvantages to parallel or seriescircuits in general. They are just different. Each has its own characteristics which may be advantageous or disadvantageous depending on the circumstances.
For example, in a series connection, the same current goes through all the...

Series and Parallelcircuits
In a seriescircuit each component comes one after another. Just like a T.V series, where episode 2 follows after ep.1 and so on.
In a parallelcircuit the electricity has a choice of routes around the...

We have two basic ways of connecting circuit components:
Seriesparallel
1. SeriesCircuit – is an electric circuit having its parts connected serially (without branching). It has only one path for the charges to move along and the charges must move in “Series” which...

Cells in series and in parallel
Cells in Series
When cells are connected in series with each other and they are all connected in the same direction the total potential difference supplied to the circuit is the individual potential differences added together.
Vtotal = V1 + V2 + V3...
1. Electric circuits can be series or parallel.
2. An ammeter measures electric current, in amps, by measuring how much charge is flowing in the circuit.
3. A voltmeter measures, in volts, the difference in electrical energy between two points of a circuit.
4. When electric charges...

• when the bulb is connected in series to other bulbs and
• when it is connected in parallel to other bulbs.
You will also investigate the role of batteries in a circuit.
Light bulbs are primarily used in this experiment instead of...
