Series/parallel Circuits What Is a Series Circuit?

What happens in a parallel circuit if more bulbs are added?

In a parallel circuit the current goes through separate branches. If another branch is added with another bulb, the current has an additional path to take. But, the battery (or generator) produces a constant voltage, so the current through the original bulbs does not change, and neither does their brightness.
