a circuit that splits into branches. A break in one branch will not stop current in the other branches.
A circuit in which voltage is applied equally to all elements.
a circuit in which an electric current has two or more paths to follow
Two or more electrical devices connected to the same pair of terminals so separate currents flow through each; electrons have more than one path to travel from the negative to the positive terminal.
Circuit in which two or more electrical devices, such as bulbs, are connected so that electricity can flow through each independent of the others. Since each device has its own circuit, equal amounts of electricity reach all devices and each device can be controlled without affecting the others.
Electrical circuit with the loads connected across the power source instead having the power source pass through each load in the series, keeping unbroken continuity of the circuit, so that if one fails, the other do not.
A circuit in which the current has two or more paths to follow.(Basic Science/Electricity/parallelcircuit.htm)(Basic Science/Electricity/seriesparallelcircuits.htm)
Provides more than one path for electricity to flow.
A circuit in which the current has more than one path to follow.
a closed circuit in which the current divides into two or more paths before recombining to complete the circuit
a circuit having more than one current path connected to a common voltage source
a circuit in which components are arranged so that the path for the current is divided
a circuit in which every component is connected in parallel with every other component
a circuit in which the resistors are arranged with their heads connected together, and their tails connected together
a circuit with more than one path or branch through which electric current can flow
an electrical circuit in which electrons leaving a power supply have two or more paths they can follow to go back to the power supply
1. A circuit in which the components are connected across each other. 2. A circuit whose component leads bridge common conductors like a ladder.
Two or more parallel paths for current flow. See also Series Circuit.
A circuit in which the identical voltage is presented to all components, and the current divides among the components according to the resistance or the impedances of the components.
A circuit in which the current has multiple paths.
