What are the effects of type of circuit on number of bulbs lit?


IV: Type of circuit

DV: Number of bulbs


If you change the type of circuit then the number of bulbs lit would change.

Conclusion

I Think that the parallel circuit is the best choice for Christmas lights. One reason is that if one of the bulbs went out in a series circuit, the rest of the bulbs would not be lit. If a bulb went out in a parallel circuit, the rest of the bulbs would still be lit. Another reason is that parallel circuits are better for making stronger wires. That is why i think that the parallel circuit is the best for Christmas lights.
