Series Circuits

  • If you remove or disconnect one component in the circuit everything stops
  • Potential difference (voltage) is shared between components
  • Current is the same everywhere
  • Resistance adds up, the total resistance is just the sum of all the resistances
  • Cell voltages add up

Parallel Circuits

  • Each component is…
