# you are given two nichrome wire of same length and different thickness Which wire will get heated first Give reason.?

You are given two nichrome wire of same length and different thickness Which wire will get heated first Give reason.? Asked Merlin Mary Mathew Answer: If the wires are connected one by one to a source, (or connected in parallel to the same source) the one having less resistance (Greater thickness) will get heated up first. [...]

# Rate of heat developed in an electric heater

An Electric Heater of resistance 8 ohm draws 15 A from service mains 2 hrs. Calculate rate at which heat is developed in heater. Please tell me the answer in watt and joule

# Change in resistance due to stretching a wire

“There is a wire whose resistance is R. it is streched, and its length gets increased to 2%. find new resistance.” – Knishka Agrawal asked Answer: The resistivity does not change due to stretching, but the length and area of cross section changes; but the volume remains constant. Therefore, resistance changes which can be calculated **...Read the full post**

# If a Cu wire is stretched to make it 0.1% longer , the %age change in its resistance is ?

When stretched, the volume remains constant. So, A1l1=A2l2 Original resistance R1= rl1/A1 Final Resistance R2= rl2/A2 Percentage change in resistance = (R2-R1)x100/(R1) Substitute the values and try to get the answer

# A Question from Current Electricity

Pratham asked: The resistances of 2 bulbs are in the ratio 1:2.if they are joined in series,find the ratio of the energy consumed by the 2 bulbs? Answer: When connected in series, the same current flows through each of the resistors. Therefore, the energy dissipated is directly proportional to their resistances. That is, the … Continue reading A Question from Current Electricity
