Current Electricity

With current electricity, you have to have a full loop or circle. The loop or circle has to be a conductor so the electricity could pass through the circle. With current electricity, the loop could be a parallel circuit or a series circuit. With a simple circuit, if one of the light bulbs go out, none of the other light bulbs in the circuit will be working. But, with a parallel circuit, if one of the light bulbs go out in the circuit, the other remaining light bulbs will be able to work because the electricity that makes them light will have another way to travel. The energy will keep flowing around and around until something in the circuit causes it to open.
