    1. resistance of the bulb equal to 220*220/60= 806
      total resistance of the circuit 220/9= 24.44ohm

      So total bulb means resistance connected in parallel 806/24.44=33

  3. plz give me the solution of ques 14

  4. plz give me the solution of ques 14

  5. Total equivalent resistance between two point is = (5+5)*5/(5+5+5)= 10/3

  6. please give the equation for 12th question

  7. plz give the equation for 12th question
