The Parrallel circuit

when Christmas lights are arranged in a parallel circuit then when 1 bulb bursts (is removed) will the other bulbs light up.


The IV is the light bulbs, and the DV is the circuits.


If Christmas lights are arranged in a parallel circuit then when 1 bulb bursts (is removed) then the other bulbs will still light up.

Observations

When they were lit they were bright and connected from 2 sides of each bulb. When the middle bulb busted they all stared lit up and bright.

Series Circuit

If Christmas lights are arranged in a series circuit then when 1 bulb bursts (is removed) then will the other lights stay lit?

Observations

When the bulbs were all lit they were all shining and connected. When one busted they shut off and didn't light up.

Conclution

A parallel circuit is the best series to use for Christmas lights because all 3 light bulbs stayed lit. So if one bulb bursts on the tree then only one goes out not the whole tree, so you don't have to go buy a new Christmas tree.
