Q: You have a light bulb in series with a battery to make a complete circuit. Then you have another circuit with two light bulbs in parallel connected to a battery. The lightbulbs in all the circuits are identical and the batteries are the same in the two circuits. Before working with these circuits, you are asked to make some predictions: (a.) What is the brightness of the bulbs in circuit 2 (the light bulbs in parallel) relative to each other and to the bulb in circuit 1? (b.) If one of the bulbs is removed from circuit 2, how will the brightness of the other bulb be affected? Does it matter which bulb is removed? I think that (a.) the light bulb in series with the battery is brighter than the two in parallel and they are as bright as each other. (b.) If one is removed, the bulb will become as bright as the bulb in circuit 1; and that it does not matter which is removed. Am I right in thinking this? And can someone explain this more to me?
