Resistances in series and parallel

  1. Oct 12, 2009 #1
    answer these questions please..thanks...


    1.) what are the advantage and disadvantages of the series and parallel connection?

    2.) when resistors are connected in series in a circuit, what are the relationships between the voltage drops across the resistor and the currents through the resistors?

    3) when resistors are connected in parallel in a circuit, what are the relationships between the voltage drops across the resistors and the currents through the resistors?
