(a)

To determine
The ratio ΔVseriesΔVparallel .

Explanation

Formula to calculate the potential difference in series circuit is,

ΔVseries=IsR

  • R is the resistance.
  • Is is the current in series circuit.

Formula to calculate the potential difference in parallel circuit is,

ΔVparallel=IpR

  • Ip is the current in series circuit

(b)

To determine
The ratio ΔPseriesΔPparallel .
