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.
