-PARALLEL CIRCUIT
Parallel circuit, each device is placed in its own separate branch.
The presence of branch lines means that there are multiple pathways by which
charge can transverse the external circuit. Each charge passing through the loop of
the external circuit will pass through a single resistor present in a single branch.
When arriving at the branching location or node, a charge makes choice as to
which branch to travel through on its journey back to the low potential terminal.
A parallel circuit is a closed circuit in which the current divides into two or more
paths before recombining to complete the circuit. Each load connected in a
separate path receives the full circuit voltage, and the total circuit current is equal
to the sum of the individual branch currents for inductors and resistor.
Simply remember that Parallel means two paths up to thousands of paths. The
flow of electricity divided between each according to the resistance along each
route.
If you turn on the switch it will have a continuous flow of electricity. On the other
hand, if you remove the other bulb the flow of electricity will be stopped because
it is a parallel circuit.

MATERIALS:
*Battery
*Switches
*Wires
*Bulbs
PROCEDURE:
While creating a parallel circuit is not complicated, this method requires you to use
wire and a switch.
*Gather all materials that will be used in making a parallel circuit.
*Prepare wires because wire is a conducting material, which will create the circuits
between the power source and your leads.
*Connect the first bulb to the battery, attach 1 of the wires to the positive terminal
of the battery and wind the other end around the left side of 1 of the lightbulbs.

*Begin to connect the switch to the battery. Take a separate piece of wire and
connect it to the negative terminal of the battery, take the other end of the wire
and connect it to the switch.

*Connect the switch to the first lightbulb. Using yet another piece of wire, connect
it first to the switch, and then wind it around the right side of the first lightbulb/

*Connect the second lightbulb, take your fourth piece of wire and wind it around
the left side of the first lightbulb, and then wind the other end around the left side
of the second lightbulb.

*Wrap the end of a wire around the right side of the first lightbulbs and the other
end around the right side of the second lightbulb.

*Turn on the switch and you would see both bulbs light up.
