Series Circuits

What is a Series Circuit?

When components are connected one after another
in a ring, the components are said to be in series
with each other and the circuit is called a series circuit.

An example of a series circuit
is shown above with three different resistors.

The current has only one single path to flow through.
Compare this with a parallel circuit.
