why is the voltmeter connected in parallel?

Expert Answer:

Because the galvanometer coil inside the voltmeter has resistance which can change the current drawn in the circuit from the batteries or sources. Hence we connect it in parallel and using very high resistance in voltmeter draw only a negligible amount of current.
