Test 1

Testable Question:How does the type of circuit affect the strand of Christmas lights with a burned out bulb.

IV:light bulb DV: if it works

Hypothesis:If the Christmas light are arranged in parallel circuit then when 1 bulb bursts the other bulbs will light up.

Observations

I noticed that when the bulbs were all connected they all shined.

Observations

I noticed that when i took off the one bulb they other bulbs still worked.

Hypothesis 2:If the Christmas lights are arranged in a series circuit then when 1 bulb bursts the other bulbs will not light up.

Test 2 Obersations

When the bulbs were all connected they really lightly worked but they worked.

Oberservations 4

When I took off one bulb from the series circuit the strand of lights did not work.

Conclusion

The best circuit for Christmas Lights are parallel because if only one of the bulbs burn out the rest of the strand will still work. The parallel light give off the most amount of light when all the lights are on. The series light gives off the least amount of light because it barely gets bright. The strands of lights that I would use is a parallel circuit because it is most effective. Finally, that is the how the different kinds of circuits work.
