if you have two 5 watt bulbs connected in series and then in parellel:

which of these arrangements willa allow the other bulb to continue glowing if one of the bulbs are removed?

• physics -

If they are connected in series, the circuit is broken by removing one of the bulbs.

If they are connected in parallel, there is still a path for electrons to flow after a bulb is removed.

Diagrams help.
