Why voltage is equal in parallel and current is equal in series?
what are the formulas of whole chapter electricity and for competitive exams ?
Asked by Harbans Singh | 17th Aug, 2015, 11:08: AM
In a series circuit, there is only one branch through which charges have to flow.
Hence, the current is same in series. Voltage gets divided across individual components so it is not equal.
In parallel, the charges have to flow through different branches, and so current is different.
The current gets divided in such a way that the Ohm's law is obeyed and hence, voltage remains same.
NOTE: Kindly post the other question as a separate query.

- what is volt
- why does need to maintain the current in a given electric circuit by expanding its energy stored in it?
- The flow of electrons is opposite to the direction of the flow of current as electron is negatively charged . Then why current is defined as the flow of electrons through the conductor though current travels from positive to negative terminal.
- If charge on one electron is 1.6 x 10 -19 C. Calculate number of electrons required to constitute 1A of current in 1s.

- The MCB of a Rupa’s room is tripped and keeps on tripping again and again. If it is a domestic circuit, what could be the reason of this phenomenon?
- a current
- if 20 C of charge pass a point in a circuit in 1 second what current is flowing
