Hello, I've had a qualm over the definition of ''in series'' or ''in parallel''. I want to know, when two components are in series, does that mean that they share the same current, or does it mean that the components only share one node on one side of the component with each other. Similarly, does being ''in parallel'' mean that the components have the same voltage, or does it mean that they are sharing at least 2 nodes with each other. Meaning, the components are connected to the same nodes on each side of the component. I think if the definition regarding the node sharing is incorrect or not general, then I will continue to have problems identifying circuits in parallel or series, especially when given odd arrangements (which is of undoubtedly what will be on the exams for my circuit analysis class) because it is less clear to know if two components share a voltage or not.
