Solution to Frame 81
In parallel circuit, the voltage drop across each branch is
always (the same/different).
Solution to Frame 82
In a parallel circuit, the voltage drop across each resistor
(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
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
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.
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 _________.
