The Christmas tree is decorated with a garland of light bulbs are connected in series. One bulb burns out and the new electric circuit is made without the burned light bulb. Is the light getting brighter or dimmer?
Solution. Posted on Wednesday, November 19, 2014.
According the Ohm’s law: I= V/R and the total resistance in a series DC circuit can be find by the formula R=R1+R2+R3+…+Rn.
So, if we have less bulbs, it is meant that the overall resistance is smaller. The voltage is not change and finally, electric current will be stronger.
In conclusion, the light is getting brighter.
