Beth has built a simple series circuit using wire, a battery, a lightbulb, and a switch. The bulb, however, does not light up when the switch is closed. Which describes a step that will help troubleshoot and work toward the solution of this problem? A. Change the wiring scheme to parallel. B. Use an electrical meter to test the voltage of the battery. C. Reverse the way the wire is connected to the poles of the battery. D. Shorten the length of wire between the battery and the switch

    2 parallel resistance have same potential dial difference

    And each of those 2 resistor has same potential difference as the battery

    So each resistance connected in parallel will get enough potential difference

    But if we connect 2 or more resistance in series, then the sum of potential difference of each resistance is equal the potential difference of battery

    So potential difference across any resistor connected in series is much less than the potential difference of battery

    U know longer wire has more resistance than the resistance of shorter wire

    its either the bulb, the switch, a connection in the wire, or a battery issue.

    I think the whole connecting wire should b shorter

    So the resistance of wire will b less

  15. shamim

    So the potential difference across the whole wire will b low

    And the potential difference across the bulb will b higher to light up
