How does the type of circuit affect the strand of Christmas lights?
(iv) type of circuit (iv) burned out bulb (DV) strand of Christmas lights
If the Christmas lights are arranged in a parallel circuit then when 1 bulb bursts (is removed) the other bulbs will continue to light up.
I observed that the lights are dim because of one battery and that the energy used is very high.
now I noticed that without a bulb the power still rums and nothing happens. The circuit to that bulb went to another and made the other bulbs a little bit more brighter.
If the Christmas lights are arranged in a series circuit then when 1 bulb bursts(is removed) the other bulbs won't light up.
the light is still dim when running on one battery is what I observed.
without one bulb everything stopped because it was only running on one circuit.
a parallel circuit is the series circuit to use for Christmas lights. Its because when a light bursts the others stay on? During my experiment with the parallel circuit i removed one bulb and the light stayed on. With the series circuit it, the light lit up. But when u take out one the lights turn off. This is my experiment about what to use for Christmas lights. My choice is to use a parallel circuit.
