Lightbulbs labeled and are connected to a power line as shown in the figure .What is the rate at which energy is dissipated in each bulb?

The rate at which energy is dissipated in each bulb is

See the step by step solution

Step 1: Given Information

We have been given that light bulbs of are connected to a powerline and we have to find the rate at which energy is dissipated in each bulb.

Step 2: Simplification

For the bulb of :

For the bulb:

The total resistance is:

The power dissipation in bulb is:

The power dissipation in bulb is:
