Resistors in Series

A series connection has a single path from the battery, through each circuit element in turn, then back to the battery.

Resistors in Series

The current through each resistor is the same; the voltage depends on the resistance. The sum of the voltage drops across the resistors equals the battery voltage.

Resistors in Series

From this we get the equivalent resistance (that single resistance that gives the same current in the circuit).

Resistors in Parallel

A parallel connection splits the current; the voltage across each resistor is the same:

Resistors in Parallel

The total current is the sum of the currents across each resistor:

Ammeters and Voltmeters

  • An ammeter measures current;

  • A voltmeter measures voltage.

  • An ohmmeter measures resistance; it requires a battery to provide a current.

Section

Diagramming Circuits

22.1

  • An ammeter measures the current through a circuit component.

  • The same current going through the component must go through the ammeter, so there can be only one current path.

  • A connection with only one current path is called a series connection.

Section

Diagramming Circuits

22.1

  • Any time the current has two or more paths to follow, the connection is labeled parallel.

  • The potential difference across the voltmeter is equal to the potential difference across the circuit element.

Recall: The same current passes through all the components; the sum of the potential drop across each component is equal to the potential of the source

Recall: The potential across each component is equal to the potential of the source, the sum of the current across each component is equal to the current in the circuit.
