Types of Electric Circuits

Simple Circuit: A circuit made up of a cell, a switch and

a bulb is known as a simple circuit.
Series Circuit: A circuit where bulbs are connected end to end. This type of circuit is known as series circuit.Here the current can flow only in one direction and the same amount of electric current flows through all the bulbs.
Parallel Circuit:Here each bulb is connected to the battery terminals by separate wires. This type of circuit is known as parallel circuit.In this circuit, different amount of current passes through the bulbs.
