Pictures of our finished project
Our electric house featured bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry room, living/dining area, hardwood floors, the latest in wallpaper styles and a nice green grass lawn. Of course it also had working circuits evidently.
You have three light bulbs. All have the same intensity when lit. Explain how you can prove to a classmate that they are connected in series by unscrewing one light bulb. Support your answer.
I could prove the circuit was connected in series by showing that the lights turn off if one light bulb was unscrewed, unlike parallel where if a light bulb was unscrewed the other lights would still work.
You have three light bulbs. All have the same intensity when lit. Explain how you can prove to a classmate that they are connected in parallel by unscrewing one light bulb.
I could prove the circuit was connected in parallel by showing that the other lights remained lit when one bulb was unscrewed, unlike series where if one light bulb is unscrewed, the whole circuit fails.
In question number three, describe the relative intensities of the two remaining lit bulbs if one of the bulbs in parallel was unscrewed. Support your answer.
The parallel circuits light bulbs would be brighter than the series circuit as there is less of a voltage drop with parallel circuits.
Reflect on the quality of your ability to collaborate during this project What did you do well. Or What could you have improved.
If one light bulb was unscrewed in the parallel, circuit the series light would be brighter, and the parallel circuit would be the same, because parallels work regardless, and there would be more power going around to the other circuits.
