how does parallel circuit affect light seen.
IV- parallel circuit
DV- light seen
If the Christmas lights are arranged in a parallel circuit then when 1 bulb bursts (is removed) the other bulbs will light up.
I noticed that when a light bursts the rest still light up.
If the Christmas lights arranged in a series circuit then when one bulb bursts the other bulbs don't light up.
A parallel circuit is the best series to use for Christmas lights. If a light that is using a series circuit goes out, the others will go out with it. Unless they are using parallel circuits because only one will go out. The rest will stay on. That's why parellel circuits are better to use for Christmas lights.
