The flashcards below were created by user Olivia14 on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. what is a series circuit
    a series circuit are connected from end to end
  2. what is a parallel circuit
    parallel circuits are connected side by side
  3. How is the current affected in:
    *A series circuit
    *A parallel circuit
    • The current in a series circuit is the same throughout (I1=,I2=,I3)
    • Parallel circuits:The current in the branch loops add up to the total current in the main loop. (I1+I2+I3=IT)
  4. How is the voltage affected in a
    *Parallel circuit
    *Series circuit
    • Series:Voltage across each light add up to the total (V1+V2+V3=VT)
    • Parallel:The voltage in each loop is the same as the voltage in the main loop (V1=V2=V3=VT)
