series circuits

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Circuits in which the circuit elements are arranged in sequence so that the same current flows through each of them in turn. For resistances in series, the total resistance is the sum of the individual resistances. For capacitors in series, the total capacitance, C, is given by 1/C = 1/C1 + 1/C2 + 1/C3 ….
