**assalamualaikum all my readers.**

**today's topic of the entry is ELECTRICITY**

**subtopic is SERIES CIRCUIT & PARALLEL CIRCUIT**

**this lab activity was carried out on 25th April 2012.**

**the students are from my Primary 5 class.**

**above : SERIES CIRCUIT (added with dynamo)**

There are two basic ways in which to connect more than two

circuit components:

*series*and*parallel*.
Components of an electrical circuit or electronic circuit can be connected in many different ways. The two simplest of these are called

**series**and**parallel**and occur very frequently. Components connected in series are connected along a single path, so the same current flows through all of the components. Components connected in parallel are connected so the same voltage is applied to each component.
A circuit composed solely of components connected in series is known as a

**series circuit**; likewise, one connected completely in parallel is known as a**parallel circuit**.
In a series circuit, the current through each of the components is the same, and the voltage across the components is the sum of the voltages across each component.In a parallel circuit, the voltage across each of the components is the same, and the total current is the sum of the currents through each component.
