VOLTMETER is parallel in the circuit
voltmeter measures the (volts) potential difference between any two points in a circuit
AMMETER measures amps (current) and is connected in series in the circuit
OHM'S LAW V = I x R
SERIES CIRCUIT defined as an electric circuit whose components parts are arranged end-to-end so that the current passed consecutively thru each part
PARALLEL CIRCUIT the component parts are connected as branches of the main circuit so that the current is divided among them
POWER P = IV the electric energy expended per second
