A connection between two electric elements is said to be
- in series if the current is the same in the two
- in parallel if the voltage is the same in the two
- There is just one current pathway ,
- All elements have identical present by them.
- The sum of potential drops throughout every part is the same as the emf of the supply. This statement is named kirchoff’s voltage law.
- In series circuit it follows that if there’s a break in any a part of the circuit, no current flows.For this reason fuses, circuit breakers and safety switches are positioned in series with the home equipment they’re designed to guard.
- Ammeters are positioned in series with the part whose current you are trying to measure.
The properties of a series circuits are :
- Resistance is additive.
- Current stays the identical throughout the circuit.
- Voltage is additive.
- Energy is additive.
- There’s multiple current pathway,
- All elements have the identical potential distinction throughout them.
- The sum of current flowing into any ponit in circuit equals the sum of currents flowing out of that point.This statement is called kirchoff’s current law.
- In parallel circuit, every component acts as if it have been the one one present. A break in a single circuit would not have an effect on the others. Not like a series circuit, it is not ‘ one out all out’ !.
- Voltmeter are positioned in parallel with the component whose voltage you are trying to measure.
The properties of a parallel circuit are :
- The whole resistance is lower than anybody resistance.
- Voltage stays same through the circuit.
- Current is additive.
- Energy is additive.
