# Series and Parallel Resistive Circuits

 This module reviews Kirchhoff's current and voltage laws, and then explores resistive circuits using these principles. Analysis of resistive circuits for resistors in series and in parallel is explained, as well as introducing current and voltage division methods. Equivalent resistors and their respective equations are presented as well. Keywords & Topics: resistor, resistive, circuit, electric, series, parallel, Kirchhoff, law, current, voltage, division, equivalent circuits Main Topic: Electric Circuits
