1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 4 identical light bulbs are connected either in series (circuit 1) or parallel (circuit 2) to a constant voltage battery with negligible internal resistance as shown. (Sorry about the sloppy diagram but that's pretty much the gist of it) Compared to the individual bulbs in circuit 1, the individual bulbs in circuit 2 are: A) 1/4 as bright B) less than 1/4 as bright C) 4 times brighter D) the same brightness E) more than 4 times brighter 3. The attempt at a solution The resistance in Circuit 1 would be 4R while the resistance in Circuit 2 would 1/4 R. Because the parallel has a lower resistance, it has a greater current therefore there is more power in the parallel configuration. I thought the right answer was C) 4 times brighter but it is wrong and I can't understand why that is. What am I missing here?
