A short is just a wire. The potential difference between two points of a wire is zero hence the voltage measured is equal to zero.

Test: Series Circuits & Parallel Networks - Question 9

What happens to the current in the series circuit if the resistance is doubled?

Detailed Solution for Test: Series Circuits & Parallel Networks - Question 9

Current is inversely proportional to resistance so resistance increased 2 times means current is decreased 2 times.

Test: Series Circuits & Parallel Networks - Question 10

If two bulbs are connected in parallel and one bulb blows out, what happens to the other bulb?

Detailed Solution for Test: Series Circuits & Parallel Networks - Question 10

In a parallel circuit, if one bulb blows out, it acts as an open circuit. Current does not flow in that branch but it continues to flow in the other branch hence the bulb continues to glow.
