Take the # 1 battery and connect the positive cable to the vehicle. Then connect the negative cable on # 1 battery to the positive post on battery # 2. Finally connect the negative post on battery # 2 to ground on the vehicle. You will have 12 volts but only the amperage of #1 battery.

Can you use three 8 volt batteries to make 24 volts?

Yes, if you put them in series.

How many batteries needed in a series circuit?

It depends on the load and desired voltage. The voltage adds as you put batteries in series. Positive to negative, etc.

Can you use 4 12 volt batteries in a 24 volt system?

Yes, if you wire them as two pairs in series to each other. Two batteries in series will give you 24 volts, and another two in series will give you also 24 volts. put the two 24v groups in parallel and you have 24 volts.

How do you put 2 batteries in series?

Wire minus - to positive +. Know that this will increase the voltage but the amps will stay the same. Wire two 12 volt batteries together in series and you have 24 volts. Click the link.

Five 1.5 volt batteries?

They make a 7.5 volt battery when put together

Is 24 voltage a lot?

It depends on the use it is being put to. It is sufficient for a 24 volt circuit. Too much for a 12 volt circuit and too little for a 240 volt circuit.

Why would you add batteries in series?

Putting batteries in series will up the voltage of the entire circuit. Certain things need higher voltage, so you put your batteries in series. Putting batteries in parallel will not up the voltage, but will let the current last longer. Watches would be more of an example for that. You want watch batteries to last long.

What is two or more batteries put together?


Describe how a series circuit is put together?

A series circuit is put together such that it only has one path for the charges to move along. There is no alternative route for a series circuit.

When you compare 3 lamps in a series circuit to the same 3 lamps in a parallel circuit connected to the same 12 volt battery which statement is true?

Put correct question to get correct answer !

Can you charge two 12 volt batteries wired in series without disconnecting them with a 12 volt charger?

No, since in series they are 24 volts so you need to charge each one independently with the 12 volt charger. This may be done disconnected or leave them connected and put the charger on the + - of the same battery.

Where would you put an ammeter in a circuit?

in a series circuit or it will not work. Put it after the bulb

Where do you put your leads when checking continuity on a series circuit?

When checking continuity in a series circuit, you put your leads in series with the circuit or device being checked. You also make sure the circuit is deenergized and that it is open.

Where in a circuit do you insert a voltmeter?

You put the leads of the volt meter across the circuit if it is a simple volt meter. You need to know the difference in the voltage between two points.

How are the 12-volt batteries connected to provide the required 24-volt electrical power for the FRS generator?

If you put two 12 V batteries in series you get 24 V. Connect the positive of battery 1 to the negative of battery 2. Then you have 24 V between negative of battery 1 and positive of battery 2.

How do you convert 120 volts electric fan to 240 volt?

put double power batteries in

How to convert six 1.5V rechargeable battery to 1.2V and become 7.2V?

just put 5 of the 1.5 volt batteries in series that will give you 7.5 volts. it should work in a 7.2 volt aPPLICATION. OR use ohms law and work it out, google it man

How Do you Connect 8 1.5 volt batteries to make a 12 volt battery?

+ to - to + to - to + to - to + to - to end to end the same way as you would put them in a tubular torch.

Why Can't 2 9 volt batteries start a car?

Two nine volt batteries connected in series put out a nominal 18 volts, which is more than enough potential. However, the current draw of the starter is a lot more than two tiny 9V batteries are capable of. There's a reason car batteries are so large, despite only putting out slightly more voltage than a 9V battery does.

How do battery operated torches work?

The batteries supply the needed energy, and complete the circuit, allowing the torch to work. (You can see the effect of having a complete circuit, for it to work when you put the batteries in the wrong way. This disconnects the circuit.)

Where ammeter and voltmeter are put in circuit?

the ammeter is put in series in the circuit ... and the voltmeter in parallel with what's you're measuring

How do you make a series and parallel connections experiment?

Two batteries, put them in series and either measure the voltage with a voltmeter, or with a fan connected watch the speed increase. A parallel connection will increase the current available but will not have an obvious change in output, as the current available is just that, ready for use. You can do something else with parallel and that is to have a volt meter showing that there is a current flow between the two batteries and that is why batteries connected in parallel will discharge.

What is the purpose of batteries in series?

to duplicate voltage,like if u have three batteries each battery was 6 volt and link them each other in series way like train u u will get 18 volts,,but if u put them together side by side like cars in park u will get 6 volt same of 1 battery but in return the Amp will increase,will be 3 double.....sorry about my English because i am Arabic person...thank u for reading my answer.

What are some of the advantages of series circuit?

Two types of circuit are serial and parallel. Putting the batteries in series will add their voltages, while putting them up in parallel will increase their power (amp/hours available) If lights are in series, and one burns out, then they all go out. If they are put up in parallel when one burns out the rest will stay on; like Christmas lights.

120 volt or 240 volt electric heat?

240V is much more effecient, and you can put more heaters on a 20 amp circuit than you can a 120V.
