voltage is the same in a parallel circuit whereas current is shared in a parallel circuit(Original post by oldmansteptoe)
current isnt shared out, the same current runs around the whole circuit, but spilts up at the cross section. the voltage is lost in that ratio, not the current.

voltage is the same in a parallel circuit whereas current is shared in a parallel circuit
and voltage isnt the same, the same voltage flows through each loop, but that amount of voltage is lost between all of the components in that particular loop.
