Christmas Lights Webquest

How dose the type of circuit affect the lights when one is broken.

The independent variable is the type of circuit and the dependent variable is the amount of lights still lite when one is broken.

If the Christmas lights are arranged in a parallel circuit then when one bulb burst the others will stay on.

I observed that they are all very bright and all on.

I observed when I took one out the others stay on  and they are the same amount of bright.

If the Christmas lights are arranged in a series circuit then when one burst the others will turn off.

I noticed the lights were not as bright as in the parallel circuit.

I noticed that when I took one off the others lights turned off.

In conclusion, a parallel circuit is the best circuit to use for Christmas light because it is the brightest, and also when one burst the other lights stay on.
