Series circuit Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Components of an electrical circuit or electronic circuit can be connected in many different ways. The two simplest of these are called series and parallel and occur frequently. Components connected in series are connected along a single path, so the same current flows through all of the components. Components connected in parallel are connected so the same voltage is applied to each component.
