Series and Parallel Circuits

Series and Parallel Circuits problem 38

Two identical light bulbs are connected in parallel in an electrical circuit. The combination is then connected to a voltage source that produces a voltage of 12V.

  • What is the voltage across each bulb?

  • What is the current through the first bulb compared to the current through the second bulb?

  • Does the voltage across the lower bulb change if we disconnect the upper bulb?
