Predict/Explain A dozen identical lightbulbs are connected to a given emf. (a) Will the lights be brighter if they are connected in series or in parallel? (b)Choose the bestexplanation from among the following: I. When connected in parallel each bulb experiences the maximum emf and dissipates the maximum power. II. Resistors in series have a larger equivalent resistance and dissipate more power. III. Resistors in parallel have a smaller equivalent resistance and dissipate less power.
