  1. This is the term used to designate the point in a circuit where two or more components are connected.
    Node
  2. This is the term used to describe one of the current paths in a parallel circuit.
    Branch
  3. This law states that the sum of all currents entering a node must be equal to the sum of all currents leaving that node. In other words, the algebraic sum of current entering and leaving a node is zero.
    Kirchhoff's Current Law
  4. This is used to designate a circuit that has multiple paths for the flow of current.The voltage drops across each of the circuit branches are the same.
    Parallel Circuit
  5. This is the method for determining the equivalent resistance for a parallel circuit.
    The reciprocal of the sum of the reciprocals of the resistances of each branch.
