In which of the circuits shown does a current exist to light the bulb?
Step 1 of 3
Solution 9E In the first figure the bulb is not connected to the circuit. One of terminal of the bulb is just connected to the point where the tow wires are connected. So the current will not flow through the bulb, the current will flow through the wires only. In the second case, only the bottom wire is completing the circuit. The upper wire, which is connected to the bulb is not completing the circuit and hence there will not be any through this wire and hence through bulb. In the third figure, both of the wire connected to the same terminal of the battery and same terminal...
