The current flow into a parallel circuit is equal to the sum of the current in each branches of the circuit.

The current flow into a resistor = the current flow inside the resistor = the current flows out from the resistor

I A = I B = I C

I = I 1 + I 2

I = I 1 + I 2

Example

I A = I B = I C I = I 1 + I 2 Example

In a series circuit, the current at any points of the circuit is the same.

If the resistance of the 2 resistors is the same, current will be divided equally to both of the resistor.

Series Circuit Parallel Circuit The sum of the potential di fference across individual resistor in between

The sum of the potential difference across individual resistor in between 2 points in a series circuit is equal to the potential difference across the two point.

V = V 1 + V 2

The potential difference across all the resistor in a parallel circuit is the same.

2 methods to find the internal resistance and electromotive force

a. Open Circuit – Close Circuit method

Open Circuit

Close Circuit

 
 
 

In open circuit ( when the switch is off), the voltmeter shows the reading of the e.m.f.

In close circuit ( when the switch is on), the voltmeter shows the reading of the potential difference across the cell.

With the presence of internal resistance, the potential difference across the cell is always less than the e.m.f

b. Linear Graph method
