  • Circuits.
    • Parallel
      • The potential difference across each component is the same.
      • The current is different in different branches of the circuit.
        • The  total current is the sum of the currents through the separate components.
        • The higher the resistance, The lower the current.
    • Series
      • The total resistance is the sum of all the individual resistors.
      • The total potential difference of the cells is the sum of the individual cells.
      • The potential difference of the supply is shared between the components.
      • The current is the same through each component.
