Posted on November 9, 2006 by Merrill FalkCircuits Series Circuits Several properties of a series circuit will be demonstrated in this experiment. The primary concepts to be covered are: 1. Lamps in series reduce current flow. 2. Lamps in series increase the total resistance of the circuit. 3. The voltage across each bulb in a series circuit decreases as the number of bulbs in the circuit increases.
