Series Circuit - The series circuit is the most simple out of the two circuits. This is what it looks like.
- The current through each componet is the same
- The potential difference (voltage) across each component adds up to the potential difference of the battery
- The Potential difference is largest across the component with the greatest resistance because more energy is transferred.
Parallel Circuit - This circuit is a little more complicated but is more commonly used.
This is what a parallel circuit look like.
- The potential difference across each component is equal to the potential difference of the battery (If the battery was 12V then each bulb…
