Resistors in series and parallel

Asked by Jaziya | 19th Feb, 2010, 10:56: AM

Expert Answer:

The basic idea of a "series" connection is that components are connected end-to-end in a line to form a single path for electrons to flow:

The basic idea of a "parallel" connection, on the other hand, is that all components are connected across each other's leads. In a purely parallel circuit, there are never more than two sets of electrically common points, no matter how many components are connected. There are many paths for electrons to flow, but only one voltage across all components:

Hope this helps.
