My question originates from an experiment we conducted in our science class
recently, in the experient we had a number of globes attached in series and
when we switched them on the voltage coming from the battery was devided into
the number of globes, each receiving the same amount of voltage. How is it that
the voltage can pass through the first globe and not be all used up?
