Welcome to my Electric House Project, for this project, myself, Stephanie and Emily created 4 different rooms with different electrical circuits. They rooms we made were a Bedroom, Bathroom, a Kitchen, and a Living room.
1.You have 3 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.
When/if all of the light bulbs are turned on, to prove that they are a series, you can unscrew the first bulb of the circuit and then if you wired it correctly, the rest of the lights should go out.
2.You have 3 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?
With the switch turned on, to prove that this circuit is parallel one could simply remove or unscrew a single light bulb and because the circuit is parallel, the other light bulbs would still be lit.
3.You have 3 light bulbs. Two are connected in parallel. This parallel combination is connected in series with the third light bulb. describe the relative intensity of each bulb. Support your answer.
The parallel light bulbs, the light should be evenly dispersed. Through the series, the light should be dimmer than the others, because most of the light is going towards the parallel so, because basic math 2/3 is more then 1/3.
4.In question number 3, describe the retaliative intensities of the two remaining lit bulbs if one of the bulbs in parallel was unscrewed. support your answer
If one of the parallel bulbs was unscrewed than there is only 2 light bulbs to light, so the intensity levels are about evenly distributed, 50/50.
