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

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

Expert Solution
To determine

The factor not characteristic of a parallel circuit.

Explanation of Solution

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...
