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.
(also Parallel connection) An electrical circuit in which each component of the circuit (e.g., a set of light bulbs) is connected across a voltage source (e.g., a battery) so that an electric current flows through each component along a separate path. See Series circuit.
A circuit in which all positive terminals are connected to a common point, and all negative terminals are connected to a second common point. The voltage is the same across each element in the circuit.
