Hey. Ive been told that the total voltage supplied to an electrical series circuit will equal the sum of the potential drop across the circuit. Im a bit confused.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Lets say i have a 12V battery in a circuit, so each coulomb of charge obtains 12J of potential energy. What if there are no electrical devices? How can the potential drop equal the supplied potential difference?
