Term

Definition
A circuit that only has one pathway for electrons to flow 


Term
Current for series circuit 

Definition
It is the same throughout 


Term
Voltage in a series circuit 

Definition
The voltages at each load with add up to the voltage supplied 


Term
Resistance in series circuit 

Definition
The resistance will go up if a resistor is added and the current will slow down 


Term

Definition
A circuit that has more than one pathway for electrons to flow 


Term
Voltage in parallel circuit 

Definition
The parallel loads are equal to each other 


Term
Current in a parallel circuit 

Definition
The current in equals the current out 


Term
Resistance in a parallel circuit 

Definition
The resistance decreases because there is more pathways so there is more ways for the electrons to flow and the current will increase 


Term

Definition
