Question 1 of 5
Battery Configurations

Batteries can be connected together in various combinations to increase their total voltage and/or total current. Connecting batteries in series combines their voltage while keeping their current the same, connecting batteries in parallel combines their current while keeping their voltage the same, and using a series-parallel configuration, half the batteries can be connected in series and half in parallel to combine both voltage and current.

Which of the following is a characteristic of batteries connected in series?

the positive terminal of one battery is connected to the positive terminal of the next

two connections are made between each adjacent battery

total voltage equals the average of the individual battery voltages

total voltage equals the sum of the individual battery voltages
