  • question_answer A 25 watt, 220 volt bulb and a 100 watt, 220 volt bulb are connected in series across a 220 volt lines. Which electric bulb will glow more brightly                 [MP PET 1999; MP PMT 1999]

    A)            25 watt bulb                         

    B)            100 watt bulb

    C)            First 25 watt and then 100 watt

    D)            Both with same brightness

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

               The resistance of 25 W bulb is greater than 100 W bulb. So for the same current, heat produced will be more in 25 W bulb. So it will glow more brightly.
