Rules for Series Circuit

  • If there is an open part of the circuit, no current will flow.
  • Each part of a series circuit has the same current, or amperage.
  • The total resistance of a series circuit is the sum of each individual resistor.
  • Voltage of the circuit is equal to the sum of all voltage drops.
  • Voltage drop across a resistor component is proportional to the size of the resistor.
