In a series circuit, resistors are arranged in a chain. Parallel circuits, in contrast, are arranged with their heads connected together and their tails connected together.
The arrangement of resistors in a series circuit causes the current to only move down a single path. The current in a parallel circuit splits, with some current flowing along each parallel branch and recombining when the branches meet again.
