connect black to black wire, connect white to white, and green wire to bracket that came with light,and to bare copper wire that should already be in light junction box.

Examples For parallel circuit?

A single light switch used to turn on two kitchen light fixtures at the same time is one example of a parallel circuit.


Why it is often not practical to connect the electric components (example of lights) in series?

In a series circuit, if one of the light's filiments opens the bulb will go out, but along with that light every other device in the same circuit will stop operating.Think of an electric light circuit, in your home, that is controlled by a switch. When the switch is turned off the light goes out. This is an example of a series circuit where ithe switch is in series with the lamp.


What happens to the bulb when the switch is closed?

If the switch is in the same series circuit as the bulb and the filament of the bulb is not broken then the bulb should light.


How do you hook up an overhead light in the kitchen to a two way switch?

use a parallel circuit to make many lights light up at the same time as the switch is turned on.


Why would the dome light in a 1996 Dodge Neon come on when the headlight switch is used but not when the doors are open?

The door jamb switch normally completes the power circuit to the dome lamp when the door is open. When the door is closed the switch opens the circuit, removing power from the dome light. If the switch is dirty, defective, stuck pushed in, or disconnected from the wiring, when the door is open the switch does not close the circuit and the dome light remains off as if the door is still closed. The headlight switch provides an "alternate path" to close the same circuit and allow power to the dome light. I had the same problem on a 1997 Chevy C1500 pickup truck.


Why are parallel circuits more applications than series ciruits are?

With a series circuit when the switch is on, everything is on. When the switch is off or the circuit is broken by a broken light bulb then the whole circuit is off. ... In a parallel circuit each parallel branch can have its own switch. If one light bulb is broken it does not mean that any other part of the circuit will stop functioning. ... Less power is used in parallel circuits for the same output.


How does removing a bulb or opening or closing the switch affect a series circuit?

Basically, the light from the bulbs are lost at about the same time.


What are you doing to the electrical circuit in your radio when you turn the radio on and off?

When you turn your radio on and off, you are simply flicking the switch in the circuit, the same as any circuit with a switch in it. When you turn it on, the switch completes the circuit, and current can flow around the circuit.

What happens if neutral and hot wire touch on the same pole of a light switch?

You will get a short circuit and breaker will trip. If they are tied together on the load side of the switch the short will happen when you turn the switch on.


What is difference between single pole and double pole thermostat?

A single-pole switch is an on/off switch that switches a single wire such as the circuit to your overhead light. A double pole switch is also an on/off switch that switches two wires. You would use this to switch as 240 volt circuit (which requires two hot wires) or if you had two circuit you wanted to switch at the same time. I've used them when I had two large light circuits that required two breakers that I wanted to switch with one switch.


What happens to the lights in a parallel circuit if one light bulb switches off?

In a parallel circuit, nothing happens to the other lights they stay in the state they were and at the brightness they were before the light was switched off or burns out.However in a series circuit ALL the other lights would switch off at the same time.--------------------------------The lights in your home are all in a parallel circuit. Turn out one light and see what happens. Each light has its own switch?--------------------------------------------If you turn off, or remove, one light from a parallel circuit, then the amount of current the whole circuit requires will be reduced.
