# Parallel Circuits

### Bio Med Tech course 1

How many paths does current flow in a parallel circuit? Current flows in more than one complete path.
In a parallel circuit how does current flow? Current flows through each available path.
In a parallel circuit applied voltage is ---? Applied voltage is the same in each branch because it is connected across the same voltage source.
In a parallel circuit Current is---? Current is divided through each branch of a parallel circuit.
How is current calculated in a parallel circuit? Current is calculated by dividing the applied voltage by the resistance.
What does the current in each branch in a parallel circuit depend on? The current depends on the resistance in the branch
The branch with the smallest resistance in a parallel circuit has? It has the largest current flow.
The branch with the largest resistance in a parallel circuit has? It has the smallest current flow.
To calculate the total resistance in a parallel circuit with 2 or more branches what should you use? The Reciprocal Formula
The total resistance of the parallel circuit is always? Less than value of any single branch resistance
