  6. 6. Measuring Voltage. When measuring the voltage across a component, the voltmeter is always connected in parallel with (or across) the component. We measure the voltage using a device called an voltmeter. In a circuit this is given the symbol The voltage supplied by the battery is shared between all the components in a series circuit This is still a SERIES circuit.
