A light bulb is connected to an ideal voltage source. A second identical bulb is connected to the same source in parallel with the first bulb. Which is the following is true about the brightness of the first bulb? It stays the same. The current (and the electrons) flow around a circuit. But when they go fully around the circuit, and are back where they started, the potential must be the same.

Unformatted text preview: How could they keep getting pushed ``downhill’’ and end up back where the started? ASK * Consider 3 different bulbs which, when all are connected in parallel to a 120 V source, have power PA = 60 W, PB = 75 W, and PC = 100 W. Which is the following is true? The resistances are all the same. The brightness depends on the current instead....
