Question regarding series and parallel circuits? Answered
I'm a bit confused in parallel and series circuits and was hoping that someone in the instructables community could help me out.
If I wire 3 Blue LED's (3v 20mah each) in parallel their amperage will add up but the voltage will remain same, which means I would be able to run those 3 LED's off 2 AA batteries and it would last for umm.. 2200/60 = 36 Hours. And if I wire those LED's in series the voltage would add up and I would be able to run them off a 9 volt battery for um.. 300/20 = 15 Hours. I wanted to know that if my calculations were right and that in both the ways will they be equally bright.
Thanks in advance :).
I was a bit confused how to wire it up in parallel so I made a diagram can you guys tell me if it is correct?
