Electric Current - Parallel and Series equations

  • #1
Hello all. I was wondering if these equations would be correct... thank you.

Series
Voltage(total) = V1+V2+V3...
Current(total) = I1 = I2 = I3...
Resistor(total) = R1+R2+R3...

Parallel
Voltage(total) = V1 = V2 = V3
Current(total) = I1 = I2 = I3
Resistor(total) = R1+R2+R3...

What does the "*" mean in your equations? i.e., what is "Voltage*total"?

If you want a clear answer, you need to state a clear question...

Parallel
Voltage(total) = V1 = V2 = V3
Current(total) = I1 + I2 + I3
Resistor(total) = 1/(1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3)
