How does the type of circuit affect the strand of Christmas lights with a burned out bulb?
IV-type of circuit DV-strands of lights with burned out
If the Christmas lights are arranged in a parallel circuit, then when one bulb bursts the other bulbs will light up.
I noticed that all the lights lit up.
I noticed that when you take out a bulb thru lights still lit up.
If the Christmas lights are arranged in a series circuit, then when one bulb bursts the other bulbs will not light up.
I noticed that all the bulbs lit up.
I noticed that when one bulb burst, none of the lights lit up.
In conclusion, a parallel circuit would be better to use for Christmas lights because if one light bulb bursts the electricity can take another path to reach the other bulbs.
