In a series–parallel circuit, how are individual component power dissipations calculated?

Answer:

Power = Voltage times Current

Explanation:

In a series circuit, the voltage varies but the current is equal everywhere.

In a parallel circuit, the voltage drop across components is equal, but the current varies.

So, that's why power dissipation is different at different points.
