Circuits in Series and Parallel
Circuits in Series and ParallelCircuits can be built so that the current has one or morepaths to travel along.
Series CircuitsA circuit in SERIES has only 1 path to travel along.                             L1      Example:     S
Series Circuits    L1     L2         L3S
Series CircuitsTo measure current, an ammeter is always connectedin series to the part being measured.   Example:
Parallel CircuitsA circuit in PARALLEL has branched paths theelectricity may split-up into.    Example:
Parallel Circuits To measure voltage, a voltmeter is always connected in parallel to (surrounding) the part being measured...

  1. 1. Circuits in Series and Parallel
  2. 2. Circuits in Series and ParallelCircuits can be built so that the current has one or morepaths to travel along.
  3. 3. Series CircuitsA circuit in SERIES has only 1 path to travel along. L1 Example: S
  4. 4. Series Circuits L1 L2 L3S
  5. 5. Series CircuitsTo measure current, an ammeter is always connectedin series to the part being measured. Example:
  6. 6. Parallel CircuitsA circuit in PARALLEL has branched paths theelectricity may split-up into. Example:
  7. 7. Parallel Circuits To measure voltage, a voltmeter is always connected in parallel to (surrounding) the part being measured. Example:Here, the voltmeter is measuring the voltage of the source.
