please feel free to move this thread as i cannot find the correct place. in a series (dc), when two bulb of the same resistance is used, the two bulbs lighted up as bright. when one bulb is used instead of two, the bulb ligth up brighter. if again, two bulb arrange in circuit, why not the bulb nearrer to the negative end light up brighter then the next one. it seems that the electron already know the total resistance of the whole circuit at the first bulb to decide the amount of energy relesed at the bulb. am i messing up some where???
