a circuit that connects a source, load, and conductors in a single loop. Any break in the circuit will stop the flow of current.
a circuit in which an electric current has only one path to follow
In electricity, an electrical circuit serving several devices (such as lamps) wherein the current passes from one pole of the power source through each device in succession before reaching the other pole. In this type of circuit, each lamp receives only a portion of the total voltage available at the source. For example, if there are two lamps, each receives half the power; if there are three lamps, each receives one-third the power; etc. See also, Parallel.
One in which the current has only one path to take from the negative terminal of the battery through the electrical devices and back to the positive terminal; the circuit no longer works if one bulb or battery is disconnected.
A circuit that contains a single path for current to follow. The component in a series circuit are connected end to end. SHORT CIRCUIT A circuit in which the resistance drops to almost zero and current reaches its maximum value.
One path (loop) for electricity to travel through all loads. If one bulb or battery is disconnected, the circuit will NOT work.
Components of a circuit arranged end to end to form a single path for a current.
a circuit having its parts connected serially
a circuit in which all of the connections between components are series connections
a circuit in which the current has only one path
a circuit where there is only one path from the source through all of the loads and back to the source
a circuit with only one pathway for current flow
a (complete) circuit that consists exclusively of one series path
circuit in which all parts are connected one after another; if one part fails to operate properly, the current cannot flow imple circuit a basic and simple, complete path through which electricity can flow
A circuit with only one path for current through multiple loads.
All loads in the circuit are connected one after the other.
A circuit which has only one pathway for the flow of electricity.
Loads connected end to end across a voltage source.
A circuit in which the components are connected one after another, and the current is the same throughout the circuit.
A circuit which may have one or many resistors and/or other various devices connected in a series so that the current has only one path to follow.
A circuit where electrical current flows through each component, one after the other.
A circuit in which the components are arranged end to end to form a single path for current.
