Say I have two light bulbs, Bulb A is designed for a 120v system (a larger resistance built in) and bulb B is designed for a 3v flashlight (a smaller resistance built in). Assuming I can hook the bulbs up to a 120v series circuit without blowing out the bulbs, it seems counter intuitive that bulb A would use more energy, but is that accurate? Would bulb A therefore be brighter? I am interested in what happens in a series circuit and I understand that hooking the bulbs up in a parallel circuit would have a different result.
