Answer :

(a) Here resistance are connected in series

Total resistance of the circuit = R1+R2=20+4=24Ω(ohm)

(b) According to ohm’s law.



6V=I x 24Ω(ohm)

I=6 V /24 ohm = 0.25A(Ampere)

(c) Potential difference across the electric bulb

V1= IR1=0.25 X 20=5V

(d) Potential difference across the resistance wire

V2= IR2=0.25X4=1V
