Unformatted text preview: You get the least resistance by wiring the two bulbs in parallel. Therefore, batteries in series and bulbs in parallel produces the most light. 48. Unscrewing bulb A breaks the circuit. Therefore, bulb A must be wired in series with the combination of bulbs B and C. This is confirmed by the observation that unscrewing bulbs B and C also breaks the circuit. Bulbs B and C must be wired in parallel as unscrewing either one produces the same effect in the other. We also note that unscrewing either bulb B or bulb C seems to put the other bulb in series with bulb A. Thus, bulbs B and C are in parallel with each other and the combination is in series with bulb A. The bulbs are wired like the circuit in Figure 21-12....
