What kind of circuit is a light bulb?

Is a light bulb a closed circuit?

In the case of a light bulb, electrical energy is converted to light and thermal energy. Many circuits have switches to control the flow of current. When the switch is turned on, the circuit is closed and current can flow through it.

Is light bulbs parallel circuit?

The same voltage is applicable to all circuit components connected in parallel. If each bulb is wired to the battery in a separate loop, the bulbs are said to be in parallel.

What are types of circuits?

There are actually 5 main types of electrical circuits: Close circuit, open circuit, short circuit, series circuit, and parallel circuit. Each type of circuit is designed to create a conductive path of current or electricity.

How does a light bulb work in a circuit?

When a light bulb connects to an electrical power supply, an electrical current flows from one metal contact to the other. As the current travels through the wires and the filament, the filament heats up to the point where it begins to emit photons, which are small packets of visible light.

What is an closed circuit?

a circuit without interruption, providing a continuous path through which a current can flow.

Which circuit has brighter bulbs A or B?

1. When all bulbs are lit, bulb A is the brightest and bulbs B and C are equally bright. 2. If you unscrew A, bulbs B and C remain the same.
