Parallel Circuits

SKU: ELPARC0CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The components of an electrical or electronic circuit can be connected in many different ways. The two simplest of these are called series and parallel and occur very frequently. Components connected in parallel are connected so the same voltage is applied to each component. In this course, participants will learn about the fundamentals of parallel circuits as well as how to calculate current, voltage, and resistance in them.
