Parallel Circuit or Series Circuit
Testable Question, Variables, Hypothesis 1
If I use a parallel circuit for Christmas lights, will it work better than a series circuit?
IV: parallel circuit DV: work better
If I use a parallel circuit then it will work better than a series circuit.
The bulbs lit up even when one was busted. The bulbs lit up even thought the wires ran through the bulbs.
1 bulb busted
If I use the series circuit, then it will not work as well.
One bulb busted
When a light bulb got taken out it didn't work anymore.
In conclusion the parallel circuit is better. When there was one light out in the parallel circuit the rest still worked. In the series circuit when one was out the rest went out too. That means that if one light on your Christmas lights went out, then none of the would work. So I believe that the parallel light circuit is better.
