Solution to Frame 81

In parallel circuit, the voltage drop across each branch is

the same

always (the same/different).

Solution to Frame 82

In a parallel circuit, the voltage drop across each resistor

the same

(regardless of size) is the same. In a series circuit, the

voltage drops are (the same/different) according to the size

of the resistor.

Solution to Frame 83

Now that you know what happens to resistance and voltage

different

in a parallel circuit, let us look at current. The diagram below

shows that in a parallel circuit, the **current **splits and flows

through (only one/each) resistor.

Solution to Frame 84

Because the current splits up and flows through each

each

resistor, it is important that you know how to compute the

current flowing through ___________________.

Solution to Frame 86

You have learned that the symbol for current is I.

each resistor

The symbol for the current flowing through R1 is I1.

The symbol for the current flowing through R2 is I2

The symbol for the current flowing through R3 is _________.
