Parallel circuits

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I just need help on a simple question,

    In a parallel circuit with 3 bulbs, if one bulb is removed, will the intensity of the other 2 bulbs remain the same or increase?

    thanks much!

    It depends upon the internal resistance of the voltage source.
