# Question: What Is A Series Connection?

## Is series better than parallel?

Two bulbs in a simple parallel circuit each enjoy the full voltage of the battery.

This is why the bulbs in the parallel circuit will be brighter than those in the series circuit.

Another advantage to the parallel circuit is that if one loop is disconnected, then the other remains powered..

## Which gives more power series or parallel?

The power dissipated by each resistor is considerably higher in parallel than when connected in series to the same voltage source.

## What is the difference between series and parallel connection?

In a series circuit, the sum of the voltages consumed by each individual resistance is equal to the source voltage. Components connected in parallel are connected along multiple paths so that the current can split up; the same voltage is applied to each component.

## What is the use of series connection?

Series circuits All mains operated appliances have switches that are connected to the live wire (the wire that carries current into the appliance). When a switch is in series with a device, it controls the device, allowing us to switch it on and off.

## What is meant by a series circuit?

In a series circuit, if a lamp breaks or a component is disconnected, the circuit is broken and all the components stop working. Series circuits are useful if you want a warning that one of the components in the circuit has failed. They also use less wiring than parallel circuits.
