Intermediate Series and Parallel Resistor Circuit Demos and Animations (15:27)
A detailed look a combination series and parallel resistor circuit. Includes a demonstration of the real circuit and an animation of the electric potential energy of the charges as they move through the circuit. This is an AP Physics 1/JEE/NEET Topic.
