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

which circuit arrangement will give you brighter bulbs? explain?

• science -

parallel, you get 10 watts. In series, if you double resistance (as in two in series, power=V^2/R, so power is halved in each, so you get a total of 5 watts
