## Problem of Series Circuit

#### Series Circuit Diagrams

To keep the models simple we will only places a battery and resistors in the circuits of our diagrams on this page. Remember that the longer line in the battery symbol is the positive terminal and the shorter line is the negative terminal. The convention is to have current run from the positive terminal to the negative terminal. Due to this convention the resistors are numbered in order. Here the resistors get their number resistor 1, resistor 2, and resistor 3 based on the flow of current starting from the positive terminal of the battery.

### Series Circuit Rules

**Voltage Drop In A Series Circuit**

In a series circuit voltage drops across each resistor until the entire amount provided by the battery has dropped. If you add all the individual voltage drops of a series circuit together you can determine the voltage of the entire circuit (V_{T}) found at the power source.

**V _{T} = V_{1} + V_{2} + V_{3} + …**

**Series circuit:**

A path along which the whole current flows through each component is a series circuit.

**Disadvantages of using series circuits in domestic wiring:**

- Whenever the exact identical amount of current is required to travel through the element, we cannot satisfy the demand.
- Since the current again from the power supply would be reduced, the overall circuit resistance increases.
- Whenever one electrical appliance fails due to such a serial circuit problem, all gadgets cease to operate.
- In such a series circuit, the voltage has been distributed across all electrical components.
