Do modern homes use electricity that is arranged in series or in parallel circuits?
In a modern home you use parallel circuit's. The reason why they are parallel circuit and not series is For example: say your kitchen light goes off, if that light goes off the others in your house won't. They also use parallel circuit in schools. However, when there is a switch in the circuit, that switch is in series with the load, so you could say that electrical wiring is arranged in series-parallel.

Asked in Christmas, Physics
Would you use Series or parallel circuit for Christmas lights?
Yes you would use a serial circuit You would use parallel circuit lights for a Christmas tree because if you used series circuit lights, and one of the bulb blows, the rest of the bulbs will go out. But with parallel circuit lights, if one bulb blows the rest of the bulbs will remain their brightness.
What is a combinational circuit?
It was mentioned that there are two different ways to connect two or more electrical devices together in a circuit. They can be connected by means of series connections or by means of parallel connections. When all the devices in a circuit are connected by series connections, then the circuit is referred to as a series circuit. When all the devices in a circuit are connected by parallel connections, then the circuit is referred to as a parallel circuit. A third type of circuit involves the dual use of series and parallel connections in a circuit; such circuits are referred to as compound circuits or combination circuits. The circuit depicted at the right is an example of the use of both series and parallel connections within the same circuit. In this case, light bulbs A and B are connected by parallel connections and light bulbs C and D are connected by series connections. This is an example of a combination circuit By Engineer Muhammad Zaheer Meer GMS

What do parallel circuit NOT have in common with series circuit?
Parallel circuits have several things that are not in common with series circuit. First, parallel circuits have the same voltage across the different elements, whereas series circuit have the same current going through the different elements. If you are trying to find the total resistance across a parallel circuit and compare it to a series circuit, you have to use different equations. For the series circuit: Rtotal = R1 + R2 + R3 + etc... For the parallel circuit: 1/Rtotal = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 + etc... I hope that helps.

To find the current in a complex circuit it is necessary to know?
the source voltage and the total impedance Answer A 'complex circuit' describes a category of circuit that is neither series, parallel, nor series-parallel. A relatively-simple example of a complex circuit is a Wheatstone Bridge. You cannot analyse or resolve a complex circuit using the techniques used to analyse and resolve series, parallel, or series-parallel circuit. Instead you must use one or other of the various electrical theorems. For example, to determine the currents flowing in a Wheatstone Bridge circuit, you could use Kirchhoff's Laws or Thevenin's Theorem.

How do you build a series circuit in your home?
You do not build a series circuit in your home. The only series circuits are the circuits that go through circuit breakers, light switches, and relays. Electrical and electronic devices use internal series circuits but those are the only ones people build. No one builds series circuits for house wiring. Electrical outlets are connected with parallel wiring.
What two circuits one series and one parallel use light bulbs to provide resistance. Both circuits have the same number of light bulbs?
What are the similarities between parallel circuits and series circuits?
Both parallel circuits and series circuits could have light bulbs, wires, batteries and switches in them. Is that perhaps the answer being looked for by the person(s) who asked this question? <><><> In fact there are more differences than similarities between series and parallel circuits. But circuits are not simply categorised as being 'series' or 'parallel'. In fact, there are four categories of circuit. Series, parallel, series-parallel, and complex. The term 'complex' is somewhat misleading because it doesn't necessarily mean 'complicated'; rather, it is a 'catch all' expression for any circuit that isn't one of the others! A series circuit is a one in which components, such as lamps, resistors, etc., are joined 'end-to-end' so that the same current must pass through each of these components. Whenever current passes through a component, it causes a voltage drop to appear across each, and the sum of each of these voltage drops will equal the supply voltage (Kirchhoff's Voltage Law). Old fashioned Christmas-tree lights are an example of a series circuit -you will probably remember that if one lamp goes out, then they all go out!! A parallel circuit is one in which each component forms a separate 'branch', or route, through the circuit. The supply voltage is common to each of these branches, and each component draws its own, separate, current -the sum of which determines the amount of current drawn form the supply (Kirchhoff's Current Law). All the appliances in your house are connected in parallel with each other, so each is subject to the same supply voltage and, if one stops working, the others continue to work. So, as you can see, there are no similarities between a series circuit and a parallel circuit, but there are important differences. A series-parallel circuit (sometimes called a 'combinational' circuit) combines the characteristics of the series and the parallel circuit. For example if one branch of a parallel circuit consisted of three lamps in series with each other, then this would be a series-parallel circuit. There are an infinite number of examples of series-parallel circuits used in electronics. A complex circuit describes any circuit which isn't series, parallel, or series-parallel. If you have access to any electrical textbook, you could look up a 'Wheatstone Bridge' circuit -this is a very simple example of a 'complex' circuit. You cannot use the same rules to solve or to simplify complex circuits, as you can use for series, parallel, or series-parallel circuits. Instead, you must use one or other of a range of special methods, called Network Theorems. These include Thevenin's Theorem, Norton's Theorem, etc. These are best-learnt only after you have learned how to solve series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits!
Why use parallel circuit over series in household circuit?
A series circuit is like the old string of Christmas Tree lights. If any bulb burns out none of the others light because the circuit is now open. The same would happen if you used series wiring in a house. Another draw back is the number of devices in series governs how much voltage would be across each device.
