The total voltage in a series circuit is equal to the sum of the

individual voltage drops across the resistors in that circuit.

The series circuit containing three resistors (R1, R2, and R3)

has three voltage drops (ER1, ER2 and ER3) . The sum of these three

voltage drops is equal to the total voltage. Expressed

mathematically:

Et = ER1 + ER2 + ER3
