## Why is the Current same in the series connection of resistances

In case of a series connection of resistances, resistors are first connected to each other connecting one end to another. And then finally, one end and the final end of the combined resistors are connected to the cell.

As soon as the cell is connected to the combined resistances, the current starts flowing. Now the question comes “Why is the current same in series connection?

See, if you want to answer this question, in that case, you must know when will the current be different. Remember, the magnitude of the current changes when we have different paths for the flow of current. Current has the tendency to choose the easiest path ie the path with the lowest magnitude.

As soon as the current changes its direction or path of flowing, the current gets distributed. So, what does the statement “current changes the path” mean?

It means Parallel connection. So, current gets distributed in parallel connection.

And, it remains same in series connection.
