So if I have two light bulbs with different wattage how could I show what happens to them in series and parallel. The voltage remains the same.

  • physics - ,

    When the bulbs are connected in parallel, the voltage across the bulbs
    are equal. The bulb with the highest wattage rating draws the most current.

    When the bulbs are connected in series, the same current flows through each bulb. However, it is difficult to
    calculate the voltage rop across each
    bulb because of the non-linearity of
    their resistance. The bulb with the
    highest wattage rating will have the
    lowest voltage across it.
