Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to become accustomed complete circuits, electrical resistance, series connections, and parallel connections by experimenting with basic features of electric circuits. Apparatus: Items needed for this experiment are: 1. Bulbs 2. Bulb Socket 3. Battery 4. Resistor 5. Rheostat 6. Voltmeter 7. Ammeter 8. Connect Wires. Method: Throughout this entire testing the items listed above were used to experiment and see how different connections affected the light bulb(s) used. The bulbs were connected numerous ways to see if the light bulb was bright, dim, or if it even lit up at all. Results: The bulb would be bright if directly connected to the battery and dim if it was connected indirectly to the battery through another circuit. It would not light up at all if connected incorrectly or if it was connected in a way which required much resistance because the circuit flowed through the path of least resistance. Interference:
