A parallel circuit is an electrical circuit where the current branches out and flows into more than one electrical device and then flows back together again to complete the circuit. The current will still flow through th... More »

There are four variations of quadrilaterals that have two pairs of parallel sides: rhombuses, parallelograms, squares and rectangles. They are each differentiated by their relative side lengths and angles. More »

Series and parallel resonance are two distinct circuit structures. In a parallel circuit, there is infinite resistance to an alternating current. In a series circuit, there is zero resistance to an alternating current, b... More »

A parallel LC circuit is in resonance when a current detected through the parallel circuit falls in phase with the supply voltage, according to Electronic-Tutorials. At the point of resonance, a large circulating current... More »
