    Matter of the day: Series and Parallel Light Circuits


    one path-when 1 goes out, they all go out

    many paths-when 1 goes out, the others stay on

    What is it?:

    Holiday lights can be wired both ways.

    Why does it matter?.

    Home wiring is in parallel



    Circuit:a a path that allows electrons to flow.

    Parallel circuit: devices that are wired side by side.

    Series circuit: devices that are wired one after another.

    Device: any object that works in a circuit.

    Switch: a device that opens or closes a circuit.

    Resistor:a material that slows that flow of electrons.
