When they are connected in parallel across the same voltage source V, the equivalent resistance of the combination is R/2 then total power dissipated by the resistors will be V² / ( R / 2) = 4V² / 2R = 4P.

D [v]) 2 Ω.
E [ ]) HINTS-Whenever we look at the said triangle from any two of its corners, we will find that it is just a parallel combination of one 3 Ω and one 6 Ω (3 + 3 = 6) resistor. Thus, the resistance across these two corner points of the triangle will be ( 3 X 6 )/ ( 3 + 6 ) = 18 / 9 = 2 Ω.

C [ ]) 2R.
D [ ]) 4R.
E [ ]) HINTS-The resistance of a conductor is directly proportional to its length and inversely proportional to its cross – sectional area. As the length and cross – sectional area both have become double, there will no change in resistance of the wire.

D [ ]) 25 W, 220 V.

Where, V is supply voltage and W is wattage rating of the lamp. From, above equation it is clear that, for fixed voltage source , resistance of an electric lamp is inversely proportional to its wattage rating. Here, 200 W, 220 V lamp has highest wattage rating, therefore its resistance will be least.

A [ ]) decrease
B [v]) increase.
C [ ]) remain constant.
D [ ]) none of these.
E [ ]) HINTS-If we remove a portion of resistance in that initial resistance, then the current resistance value will be decreased. This leads to flow more current than the previous case.Hence, according to the power equation (P = VI), if current increases then the power of the heater also increases.

resultant resistance of the first combination to the second will be
A [ ]) 9 times.
B [v]) 1 / 9 times.

E [ ]) HINTS-If we connect three identical resistors, R in parallel, then the equivalent resistance is [ R / 3]. If we add that three [ R ] resistances in series, then the equivalent resistance is [ 3R ].Now the resultant resistance of the first combination to the second will be [ R / 3 ] / 3R = [ 1 / 9].
