Christmas Light Webquest

The Taris Jackson

If I remove one light bulb from the parallel circuit then the other two should still be lit up.

As you can see all of them are lit up nice and there are no problems. But when I removed a light bulb the other two still lit up.

Now you will see a series circuit.

If I take a bulb out of a series circuit then the others should light up.

Here is a picture of a regular series circuit

But when you take a bulb out the others don't light up so my hypothesis was stated incorrect.

Above you can see the data table that I created to show my results of the experiment.


In conclusion only one of my hypothesis was stated true. But I learned more about the way that electricity moves and light. So a parallel circuit can support more bulbs when one is broken. And a series circuit can not support more bulbs. So if I were you I would choose Christmas lights that use a parallel circuit if I were you.
