Resistor, the most basic yet essential passive component of an electronic circuit, is nothing but a device that restricts the flow of current. So why is it called passive? It is called so because it dissipates power rather than generating it in a circuit. Some practical resistors are shown in the image below. In this article, we are going to learn in detail about Resistors in Series or in simple words a Series Circuit. The figure 1 (above image) shows how they look in reality, but obviously, there will be some schematic way of representing a resistor in a circuit. Usually, in a circuit diagram, you see a component denoted by zigzag lines, which look like that shown in figure 2 (below image); that component is a resistor.  If you are interested to know in-depth about resistors, our article titled” Resistors and type of resistors” will help you.
