Resistors in series

Resistors in series

A number of resistors R), R2′ R3′ in ohms, are said to be connected in series if they are connected end to end consecutively so that the same current I, in amperes, flows through each (Fig. 35.5).

If R is the combined resistance and V, in volts, is the total potential difference across the resistors, then The same argument may be applied to any number of resistors.
