Series and parallel circuits

1

Which statement describes current in a series circuit?

2

Which statement describes voltage in a series circuit?

3

What are the readings on ammeters A_{2} and A_{3} if the reading on A_{1} = 0.5\, A

A circuit with a cell on the top wire and two lamps along the bottom wire. There are 3 ammeters - A1 is on the left, A2 is between the 2 lamps and A3 is on the right.

4

What is the reading on voltmeter V_{1} if the reading on V_{2} = 9\, V and V_{3} = 3\, V?

A circuit with a cell on the top wire and two lamps along the bottom wire. There are 3 voltmeters - V1, which bypasses the cell.  V2 bypasses the lamp on the left, and V3 bypasses the lamp on the right.

5

Which statement describes current in a parallel circuit?

6

What happens to the voltage in a parallel circuit?

7

What are the readings on V_{2} and V_{3} if the reading on V_{1} = 12\, V?

A circuit with a cell on the top wire, a lamp on the bottom wire and another lamp on a wire which bisects the centre of the outer circuit. There are 3 voltmeters - V1, which bypasses the cell.  V2 bypasses the lamp on the centre wire, and V3 bypasses the lamp on the bottom wire.

8

What are the readings on ammeters A_{1} and A_{4} if the readings on A_{2} = 2\, A and A_{2} = 2\, A?

A circuit with a cell on the top wire, a lamp on the bottom wire and another lamp on a wire which bisects the centre of the outer circuit. There are 4 ammeters. A1 is to the left of the cell, A4 is to the right of the cell.  A2 is to the left of the lamp on the centre wire and A3 is to the left of the lamp on the bottom wire.
