Hi.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Lets say I have two batteries{each one has a 12 volts} connected in parallel circuit with a load of 2 ohms.This means,that each battery will force a current of 6A through the circuit and we will have 12 amperes through the circuit.

Is this correct.Does the total amount of amps in the circuit will be 12?

Now what if the battery are connected in series.The the voltage will be 24v ,and with a load of two ohms,the current in the circuit will be 12 amps.So according to this, adding battery in series,increase the current two.The only difference between the two will be in the capacitance.The parallel circuit have two cathodes so it will have more charges, and will last a longer time.Both circuit will have 12 amps, but the parallel will last longer.

I know that I missing something, so if anyone can help... thanks.
