why is current lower in a serie circuit than a parralel one?


i have had conflicting views on this.

1) it stays the same because current is always the same

or

2) it is lower b/c there is a direct relationship btw current and voltage and in a parallel circuit, the voltage is higher so so must be the current

  1. Please stop posting this question. Your "conflicting"views are inane, neither answers the question. You need to do some thought with basic Ohm's Law.
