When starting school as an apprentice electrician, if you’ve never seen electrical circuits on paper before, it’s tricky to learn the Difference Between Series and Parallel Circuits.
Don’t worry, I break down electrical theory circuits EASY!
We cover: Solving Purely Resistive Electrical Circuits.
This free electrical theory for beginners covers:
- How a Basic Electrical Circuit Works
- What is Ohm’s Law and the Power Triangle?
- How to Solve Resistive Series Circuits
- How to Solve Resistive Parallel Circuits
- How to Solve Resistive Combination Circuits
More advanced electrical circuits will often include capacitance and inductance, called RLC circuits..
These free circuit theory tutorials focus on Resistive circuits.
Electricians mostly wire things in parallel so voltage remains the same (120V at each plug, switch, and light).
However, wiring in series is often used in scenarios like where a motor needs more torque to start!
It’s the perfect place to start if you’re confused about how to find Volts, Amps, and Resistance in a circuit!
