A Question from Current Electricity

Share with:


Pratham asked:


The resistances of 2 bulbs are in the ratio 1:2.if they are joined in series,find the ratio of the energy consumed by the 2 bulbs?

 

Answer:

When connected in series, the same current flows through each of the resistors. Therefore, the energy dissipated is directly proportional to their resistances. That is, the ratio of energy dissipated will nbe same as the ratio of resistances. (1:2)
