 GCSE Physics > Types of Circuit Series Circuits Components are connected from end to end Total resistance is the product of all the resistances added together If one component is removed or disconnected the circuit is broken Same current in all parts of the circuit Total voltage of the supply is shared between components The bigger the resistance of a component, the bigger its share of voltage Parallel Circuits Each component separately connected If one of the components is disconnected then it does not effect those it is parallel with. All components get the full source voltage (therefore the voltage is the same in all the components) The lower the resistance of a component the greater the current Total current in the circuit is equal to the sum of the currents in its separate branches Total current going into a junction is equal to the total current leaving it
