Textbook Problem

Which of the following is not a characteristic of parallel circuits?

  1. Total circuit resistance is always less than the resistance of the leg with the lowest total resistance.

  • The current through each leg will be different if the resistance values are different.
  • The sum of the resistance in each leg equals the total circuit resistance.
  • Source voltage will be dropped across each leg of the parallel circuit.
  • To determine

    The factor not characteristic of a parallel circuit.

    Explanation

    A parallel circuit is a type of circuit which provides different paths to the flow of current into the circuit. In these types of circuit, each path can operate independently with respect to other paths. A parallel circuit has some characteristics like:

    1. Total circuit resistance is always less than the resistance of the leg with the lowest total resistance...
