Series Circuits

The voltages round a series circuit always add up to equal the source voltage.

The current is the same everywhere in the circuit.

In a series circuit the total resistance is just the sum of all the resistance.

The bigger the resistance of a component the bigger its share of the total P.D (POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE)

There is an increase of the potential difference when more cells are in
