Definitions for "Series circuit"
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.
