# Current in a series circuit

## Main Question or Discussion Point

why is current SAME in a series circuit ? i know it's one path, so what if there's one path? can you please answer with a visual and helpful explanation ? i dont understand this concept. i want to know why does it stay the same in the whole circuit ?

A series path can be comprised of multiple resistors. Total resistance of the path would be the sum of all resistances. If you apply voltage between the beginning and end of the path, a current will start flowing according to Ohm's law.

$$i = \frac {V}{R}$$

So basically series resistance behaves like a one big resistor.
