## Series and Parallel arrangement

• Two or more resistors can be connected in an electrical circuit in two possible ways: series arrangement and parallel arrangement.
• Each arrangement will affect the overall resistance of the circuit and thereby the flow of current.

Resistors in series and parallel

• Consider a rock concert. The tickets for this concert were priced at 90 dollars each, and the venue organisers decided to establish three counters for collecting the ticket money.
• They had two suggestions for the arrangement of these counters. One suggestion was to place all three counters linearly, and collect 30 dollars at each counter, thus in total 90 dollars was collected. This is called a series arrangement.
