In electrical circuits series and parallel are two basic ways of wiring components. The naming comes after the method of attaching components, i.e. one after the other, or next to each other. As a demonstration, consider a very simple circuit consisting of two light bulbs and one 9V battery. If a wire joins the battery to one bulb, to the next bulb, then back to the battery, in one continuous loop, the bulbs are said to be in series. If, on the other hand, each bulb is wired separately to the battery it is wired in a parallel circuit.

Answer 1) You hook the printer up to a computer and make it shareable on the local network. You can then go to other computers on the network and add a a new… printer connected to a local LAN 2) Purchase a mini-print server device, such as this one: http://shop2.outpost.com/product/3853577 and hook it up directly to the printer. The print server then connects to the local network through a standard Ethernet cable.
When capacitors are connected in parallel, the total capacitance is the sum of the individual capacitors' capacitances. If two or more capacitors are connected in parallel…, the overall effect is that of a single equivalent capacitor having the sum total of the plate areas of the individual capacitors. As we've just seen, an increase in plate area, with all other factors unchanged, results in increased capacitance. The total capacitance is more than any one of the individual capacitors' capacitances. The equivalent capacitance of two or more capacitors connected in parallel is simply the sum of the individual capacitances.
A series connection will not work if one bulb fuses but in a parallel connection if one bulb fuses the rest will stay lit.
The main Disadvantage of parallel connection is that it uses more hardware resources for example if you want to communicate between two system using parallel connection than i…t requires more numbers of connection between those two systems.It requires redundant hardware.
A voltmeter can be connected in parallel with a resistor to show the voltage across the resistor.
If connected in series, the same current passes thru all the appliances. So, always all of them are in the same state ie all of them are running or all of them are idle. Also,… if any one appliance malfunctions, it prevents current frm flowing to the other appliances and thus they also dont work. So, home appliances are always connected in parallel. Source(s):
An ideal voltmeter has infinite impedance(resistance). If you were to break the circuit and put it in series and try to make a measurement, it is easy to see that the circuit …would act completely differently and your measurement would be wrong. An ideal ammeter is always connected in series because it has 0 resistance, so all of the current would flow through it, and not through the wire that you are trying to measure the current of. A better answer though is to think about what you are trying to measure. When you say something is 3 Volts, that is a difference between the voltages at two different points. If you want to see what the voltage drop across a resistor is, for example, you need to put one probe of the voltmeter on one side of the resistor and the other probe on the other side of the resistor. That setup is simply called being in parallel. Voltage is potential difference between two points, hence measured across or in parallel, where as current is measured in series since current flows (*)
A: An ammeter actually is a voltmeter measuring the voltage drop across a very small shunt resistance. They can measure AC or DC, make sure the meter is rated for the anticipa…ted current, and always connect in series.
if capacitors are connected parallel across the source the formula will be, c=c1+c2+c3+.. if c1,c2,c3..... are the capacitors.. if they are connected in series then the f…ormula will be.. c=1/c1+1/c2+1/c3..
Shunt means parallel only..................
Shunt resistance taking high current that's way need to connect parallel.
Yes, we can connect transformers in parallel. For this operation we should know the polarity of the transformers. If we connect transformers in parallel the total output curre…nt is equal to the sum of the 2 transformers secondary current.
It is common to pull parallel conductors to a transformer when the expected current is high enough. It can become difficult to pull 400A and larger wire so you can use 2,3 or …4 sets of smaller parallel wires to accomplish the current. = = Transformers are frequently connected in parallel with each other in order to increase the amount of apparent power (expressed in volt amperes) they can supply to a load.
It will allow to read the voltage to reflect the present current flow When a voltmeter is connected across a load, it will read the voltage dropped across the circuit load. I…f there is no load in the circuit, the meter will read the supplied voltage to the circuit.
it is placed in series with the load (circuit)
