Series Circuit Rules The current is the same at any point in the circuit. The total resistance is the sum of the individual resistances. The sum of the voltage drops or the individual resistors must equal the applied (source) voltage.

Unit 8 Combination Circuits
Parallel Circuit Rules The voltage across any circuit branch is the same as the applied (source) voltage. The total current is the sum of the current through all of the circuit branches. The total resistance is equal to the reciprocal of the sum of the reciprocals of the branch resistances.
