This module allows the user to explore the effect of resistors in both
series and parallel circuits on the current flowing at any point.
By the end of this module you should be able to:
calculate the total resistance in series and parallel electrical
determine the current at a given point in the circuit.
Assumed prior knowledge
It is assumed that you have knowledge of the following concepts:
voltage, current and resistance, and the SI units for these (Volt (V),
Ampère (A) and Ohm (W) respectively); and
series and parallel circuits, and the difference between the two.
