# 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

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
