    Welcome to PF!

    Hi master_mind! Welcome to PF! :wink:

    In one case, the current is the same; in the other case, the voltage is the same.

    Which way round do you think it is, and why? :smile:

    is it that in the series circuit the current is the same across all resistors, and on the parallel circuit the voltage is the same across each resistor.

    thanks

    That's what it is.
