Difference between Series and Parallel Connection Copy
A circuit is said to be connected in series when the same current flows through all the components in the circuit.
In such circuits, the current has only one path.
Let us consider the household decorative string lights as an example of a series circuit. This is nothing but a series of multiple tiny bulbs connected in series. If one bulb fuses, all the bulbs in series do not light up.
A parallel circuitrefers to a circuit with two or more two paths for the current to flow.
In a parallel circuit, the voltage across each of the components is the same, and the total current is the sum of the currents flowing through each component.
