SOLVING SERIES CIRCUITS
SOLVING SERIES CIRCUITSAs explained previously, a series circuit consists of only one current path. When two or more units are connected in series, the entire quantity of moving electrons (current) must pass through each unit to complete the circuit. Therefore, each unit of a series circuit receives the same current flow, even though their individual voltage drops may vary.Two or more units do not have to be adjacent to each other in a circuit to be in series. In the circuit of Fig. 2-11, it can be seen that the current flow through each unit in the circuit must be the same, regardless of the direction of current flow. If we replace the load resistor R
