Title Circuit connection (differences between the current readings and the voltage readings of circuit connected in series and parallel).
Description This is to show that in a series circuit, the current that flows through each of the components is the same, and the voltage across the circuit is the sum of the individual voltage drops across each component. 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.
