It is important for students to understand how resistors, capacitors, and batteries combine in series and parallel. The combination of batteries has a lot of practical applications in science competitions. This lab also reinforces how to use a voltmeter to test batteries, another practical skill. Students will learn that batteries connected in series add up their combined voltages. Batteries connected in parallel will add up their combined output.
