Lab 32: Series and Parallel Circuits
Purpose
To build series and parallel circuits and study the differences between them

Background
Electricians are called upon whenever new buildings need electrical work. The
electrician surveys the site and determines what kind of currents and voltages
are required to satisfy the client’s needs. Sometimes the circuit requires
components to be connected like you would in plumbing so the water could
ﬂow. This is called a series circuit. Sometimes the components need to be
connected in parallel, like the rungs on a ladder. Each type of circuit has its
advantages. In this lab, you will study the advantages of and the differences
between series and parallel circuits.

Skills Focus
Classifying, inferring, comparing and contrasting, drawing conclusions

Procedure
1. Start Virtual Physics and select Series and Parallel Circuits from the list of
assignments. The lab will open in the Circuits laboratory.

Series and Parallel Circuits

3. You need to build a circuit that has only one path for the current to follow.
This is called a series circuit. Use only resistors to make this circuit. On the
engineering paper, place ﬁve resistors in series using the resistor symbol at
the top. First start by connecting the ﬁrst resistor to an open end of the
function generator. Then drag out a new resistor and place it next to the
open end of the last placed resistor. Follow the same process until you have
ﬁve resistors in series. Complete the circuit by connecting the last resistor
you added to the other side of the voltage source.
4. Make sure that that there is only one path for the current to ﬂ...
