# Two lamps, one ra

(a) (b) As the connection is in parallel.

So voltage across both the bulbs is same and is equal to 220V.
Using the Formula P=VI,We can get I as I=P/V Where:-
P= Power
I=Current
V=Voltage/Potential Difference

Current through AB i.e 40W lamp = I1 = P1/V = 40/220 A

Current through CD i.e. 60W lamp = I2 = P2/V = 60/220 A

Total current drawn from the electric supply = 40/220 + 60/220 = 0.45 A
(c)We know that Energy= Power x Time
Total Power to two bulbs together=40W+60W=100W
According to the question both of the bulbs are being operated together at 1 hour
∴ Energy= 100W x 1hr
Energy= 100Whr

We know 1Whr= 3600 Joules
∴100Whr= 3600 X 100
=360000Joules
=360kJoules
