SERIES AND PARALLEL RESISTORS: Series Resistors.  


The total circuit resistance of n resistors connected in series can be found by adding the values together.

Current (electron flow) is common for all values of R1, R2 and R3.

As the current makes its way through the circuit each resistor will develop a voltage across it which can be calculated using Ohm's Law. The individual resistor voltage drops when added will equal the applied (battery) voltage.
