Power delivered by a dc circuit element can be calculated using the relation
Using above relation we can say
1. The rate of heat generated in a wire is doubled when both the radius & length of the wire is doubled.
2. For constant voltage, the time taken to boil water by a heater directly varies with its resistance. i.e. t ∝ R.
3. Equivalent power of two bulbs of same voltage rating connected to a supply of voltage equal to voltage rating of either is
(i) (ii) Pparallel = P1 + P2
