Do lights in a parallel circuit burn brighter than in a series circuit?

Yes, since each light would get the full voltage. Be careful if you actually carry out this experiment, that the lights don't get too much voltage. If the voltage is (for exam (MORE)

Why are 2 bulbs in a parallel circuit brighter than 2 bulbs in a series circuit?

In the parallel connection the voltage is same across both lamps   For example 2 bulbs rated at 10 Volts and drawing 1 amp each will consume 20 Watts of power and burn wit (MORE)
