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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02 parallel resistance have same potential dial difference

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And each of those 2 resistor has same potential difference as the battery

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So each resistance connected in parallel will get enough potential difference

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So potential difference across any resistor connected in series is much less than the potential difference of battery

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0U know longer wire has more resistance than the resistance of shorter wire

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its either the bulb, the switch, a connection in the wire, or a battery issue.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think the whole connecting wire should b shorter

shamim

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the resistance of wire will b less

shamim
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the potential difference across the whole wire will b low

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And the potential difference across the bulb will b higher to light up
