paraphrase the 5 characteristics of a series circuit
Electric current is composed of a single pathway through the circuit.
This current is resisted by the first resistor, the second resistor, and the third
The current in the circuit is equal to the voltage supplied by the source divided by
the total resistance of the circuit. (I = V / Rtotal)
The voltage drop (potential difference) across each device is proportional to its
The total voltage across a series circuit is divided among the individual electrical
devices in the circuit
