Series, parallel

Expert Answer:

In series combination of resistors, the current flows through each resistor is same but the voltage across them is different and in parallel combination of resistors, the voltage across each resistor is same but different current flows through each resistor.

The equivalent resistance in series combination is more than than the equivalent resistance in parallel combination.

For ex., if 1, 2 and 3 ohm resistors are connected in series than its equivalent resistance is 6 ohms while when they are connected in parallel than their equivalent resistance is 6/11 ohm.
