A series circuit is one in which two or more circuit components are connected end to end like a daisy chain.

A series circuit is a single path for electric current through all of its components.

A series circuit provides the full voltage across all the components.

In parallel circuit components are connected like the rungs of a ladder.

A parallel circuit has a different path for current through each of its components.

A parallel circuit provides the same voltage across all its components.
