Why is the current source connected in series only?
Current sources should not be connected in series. It's okay to connect them in parallel. ...

Does a battery last longer in a series or parallel circuit?
A battery doesn't see a series or parallel circuit. It just supplies the current that is demanded by the load be it a series or parallel load. Visualize that a single load across a battery is both a series and parallel load to the battery. ...
Is a ammeter connected in series or in parallel with the circuit under test?
An ammeter is connected in series. A voltmeter is connected in parallel. ammeter should always be connected in series instead of parallel becoz it is a low resistance device and we know that resistance is inversly proportional to current so more current will pass through it and if it is connected in parallel than it may get damaged ...

If Four 12 voltsbatteries connected in parallel and one 12 volt battery in series how much voltage is active across circuit?
A == B (- 12V +) (- 12V +) (- 12V +) A single 12V battery in series with 4x 12V batteries connected in parallel... Total voltage from A to B is 24 volts! Note that the single battery in series will limit the total current capacity to that of a single battery. ...
Why resistors are connected in series with a voltage source and in parallel with a current source?
A Discussion has been started about this question. Click on the View Discussion button below to take part in it. The "type" of a source does not limit in what ways resistors can be connected to it. Resistors can be connected either in series or in parallel - or in a combination of series and parallel - across a voltage source. Similarly, resistors can be connected either in series or in parallel - or in a combination of series and parallel -...
A 9.0 volt battery is connected to a 4.0-ohm and 5.0-ohm resistor What is the current in the circuit?
If a 9.0 volt battery is connected to a 4.0-ohm and 5.0-ohm resistor connected in series, the current in the circuit is 1.0 amperes. If a 9.0 volt battery is connected to a 4.0-ohm and 5.0-ohm resistor connected in parallel, the current in the circuit is 0.5 amperes. ...
Are the lights in your school connected in series current or parallel current?
Overhead lights are typically connected in parallel. If they were connected in series, then, if one light went out, all of the lights would go out. Think of Christmas lights, they are connected in series. When one of the lights burns out, the whole string of lights goes out. ...
Discuss batteries connected in series and in parallel?
Batteries in series supply 2x the voltage. Batteries in parallel provide 2x the current. ...
Asked in Car Batteries
Are the car battery cells connected in a parallel or in a series?
Sereies, with each cell about 2.2volts
How do you explain the effect of the number of batteries on the amount of current produced?
The number of batteries has only an effect on the amount of current when they are equivalent and connected in parallel. The amount of current that can flow from a group of batteries connected in series is limited to the current provided by the battery that produces the lowest current flow in the string. ...

Why resistors are connected in series with the voltage source and in parallel with current source?
a voltage source has very less(negligible)resistance.thus is considered as a short.if connected in parallel to a resistor will draw all the current acting as a short.thus is always connected in series of a resistor.where as a current source has tremendous resistance(infinity).thus if connected in series will be conidered as an open branch and no current will flow through it other than the source current. ...
When a volumetr is connected in series with a battery what does it measure the ability to?
Measures the amperage of the current .Your battery is in series with your car amp meter . ...
Asked in Technology
How does the potential difference across the light when batteries are added in series compare to parallel?
When the batteries are connected in parralell, the voltage remains the same as a single battery, but the current capability is doubled. When connected in series, the voltage doubles at the light, but the current remains the same as if a single battery was connected. Ohm's Law E=IxR R=E divided by I I=E divided by R E=Voltage R=Resistance I=Current ...
Distinguish between a series and parallel circuit?
In a series circuit, all connections (bulb, resistance, battery, electrical appliances) are connected in one single series. Hence if one stops working, electric current would not be able to flow through this circuit. In a parallel circuit, all connections are in parallel or atleast some are with respect to the battery. So if any appliance which is parallel with respect to the battery stops working, the current would still flow through the circuit skipping the path of the broken appliance. ...
Are devices of home connected in series or in parallel?
Home devices are connected in parallel and not in series.
What happen when capicator are connected in series or parallel?
When connected in series, the capacitance reduces. When connected in parallel, the capacitance increases. ...
Are car battery cells connected in series or in parallel?
Battery cells are conneted in series. Each cell of a 12v battery averages 2.1v when charged. SERIES 2-4-6-8 and so on ...
Asked in Home Appliances
Why are home appliances connected in parallel rather than in series?
A circuit connected in series makes current to flow in a single path. Any break on the circuit will cut the flow of current. As such, home appliances are connected in parallel to ensure switching one of them off does not affect others. ...
How does a series circuit differ from a parallel circuit?
Components connected in series are connected along a single path, so the same current flows through all of the components.Components connected in parallel are connected so the same voltage is applied to each component ...

Should a Voltmeter always be connected in a series with a component?
Voltmeter should be connected always in parallel to a circuit ANSWER : IT should be in parallel except when used to measure current. Then it should be placed in series across a shunt. ...
