Hi Horacio,

When a light bulb burns out, its filament breaks. So, it fails in an open state.

In a circuit, what happens to the current flow when a load fails in an open state?

As far as lights in a house – think about what happens when one of your light bulbs burns out. Are the other lights affected?

Let me know what you think!
