# Physics -- I know that in series a smaller Watt bulb has greater

### Resolved Question:

Physics -- I know that in series a smaller Watt bulb has greater resistance. Does a 60 W bulb in parallel with a 120 W bulb connected to a 120 V outlet also have greater resistance? Please do the math. thx

Well, you did this problem as though the two bulbs were independent of each other, but they're connected in parallel. Doesn't this alter the solution?

In parallel circuit the voltage is the same for all elements. I have used that concept.

I hope it will help.

Thanks

hmm, well, could you do the same problem for me in series rather than parallel so i can get a better idea of the different approachs? txh
