An electric bulb is rated 220V and 100W. when it is operated on 110V, what will be the power consumed?

An electric bulb is rated 220V and 100W. when it is operated on 110V, what will be the power consumed?

Janhavi Govinda rao

P = V2/R   If V = 220 V we have 100 W = 2202/R R = 2202/100 Î© = 484 Î©. This is the resistance of the bulb. When V = 110 V, power consumed =  V2/R = 1102 /484 = 25 W.

Answer.     P = V2/R   If V = 220 V we have 100 W = 2202/R R = 2202/100 Î© = 484 Î©. This is the resistance of the bulb. When V = 110 V, power consumed =  V2/R = 1102 /484 = 25 W.

$\fn_cm \\Solution:\\ Given:\\ Power\ (P)=100W\\ Voltage=220V\\\\ The\ power\ consumption\ of\ an\ electric\ bulb \ is\ given \ by:\\\\ P=\frac{V^2}{R}\ \ \ Here,\ P\ is\ the\ power,\ \ V\ is\ the\ voltage\ and\ R\ is\ the\ resistance\\\\ \Rightarrow 100=\frac{220^2}{R}\\\\ \Rightarrow R=\frac{220\times220}{100}\\\\ \therefore R=484\ Ohm\\\\\\ When\ the\ same\ bulb\ is\ used\ across\ the\ voltage\ of\ 110 V, then\ power\ is\ given\ by:\\ \Rightarrow P=\frac{V^2}{R}\\\\ \Rightarrow P=\frac{110^2}{484}=\frac{110\times110}{484}\\\\ \therefore P=25\ watt.$
