Electric Circuits: The Final Post

An electric circuit is a pathway for energy transfer. When connected in a closed path, the electric current can travel from a source to an object. However, the circuit MUST have a source, such as batteries. Since the circuit is a closed path, the wiring must connect to both terminals of the source. Electric circuits consist of resistors, batteries, and wires. Ways of measurements include ammeters and voltmeters. An ammeter measures current and a voltmeter measures the voltage across an element of a circuit. There are two types of circuits: series and parellel. However, you can also combine circuits.
In a series circuit, the current is the same at all points, but the equivalent resistance is equal to the sum of each single resistor and the voltage drop sum is equal to the voltage drop across the whole circuit.

In a parellel circuit, the voltage sum is equal to the voltage drop on each branch and the total current is the sum of each resistors' current. Also, the equivalent resistance is decreased each time a new resistor is added to the circuit.

This circuit consists of a series and two parellel. The two parallel resistors are connected in series with the single series resistor on the right. To find the total current, you can combine the parellel circuit's resistance and the series resistances.


  1. You did a good job with your diagrams.
    Your first paragraph is particularly good though you do not say what you meant by "source". The battery is a source of what?
    Your three circuit explanations are simply re-statements of the equations and do not clarify how current flows and how the voltages across each elements.
    Please be sure that you understand how the circuits work as it is an important part of the final exam.

  2. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to know so much about
    this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some % to force the message home a bit, however other than that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I'll definitely be back.

  4. Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking the
    time and actual effort to generate a superb article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and
    never seem to get nearly anything done.

  5. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on
    the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting
    videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  9. I usually do not leave a response, however after reading through a few of the remarks on
    "Electric Circuits: The Final Post". I do have 2 questions for you if
    it's allright. Is it only me or do a few of the comments look as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I would like to follow you. Could you post a list of every one of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
