  • We know that Voltage in parallel connection and Current in series connection do not change in an electric circuit.
  • The measurement devices are connected in a manner such that they give the desired output without adversely affecting the working of the system, which in this case is electric circuit.
  • Therefore voltmeter is connected in parallel and ammeter is connected in series so that it gives proper output reading without changing the circuit functioning.
