I have included a diagram of this simple circuit I have constructed. When hooked up to the battery, the motor starts out slow, and then speeds up to a ~constant speed. The bulb, however, starts out bright but immediately gets dimmer, almost to the point of no light being produced. If hooked up in series the current flows through the motor and then through the bulb. I know once a motor gets started it takes less current to keep it moving. the circuit, when reversed, seem to produce the same result. I know if these components were hooked up in parallel everything would work as if it were connected individually . However, I am just so curious as to why the light bulb gets dimmer when in series. I have so many thoughts about why it is happening I simply need someone else to verify the reason. So tell me why, please.
