Two lamps, one rated 40 W at 220 V and the other 60 W and 220 V, are connected in parallel to the electric supply at 220 V.
(a) Draw a circuit diagram to show the connections.
(b)Calculate the current drawn from the electric supply.
(b) Calculate the total energy consumed by the two lamps together when they operate for one hour.
(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:-
Current through AB i.e 40W lamp = I1 = P1/V = 40/220 ACurrent 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
We know 1Whr= 3600 Joules
∴100Whr= 3600 X 100

The electric power consumed by a device may be calculated by the using either of the two expressions P = I2R or P = V2/R. The first expression indicates that it is directly proportional to R whereas the second expression indicates inverse proportionality. How can the seemingly different dependence of P on R in these expressions be explained.Together With Science
