Combining Capacitors in Series & Parallel Video Lessons

Concept

# Problem: When a pair of identical lamps are connected in parallel then:A) The current in each lamp is the same.B) Voltage remains same across each lamp.C) In each lamp power dissipation remains same.D) all of the above

###### FREE Expert Solution

We are required to identify the properties of parallel resistors.

Ohm's law:

$\overline{){\mathbit{i}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{R}}}$

Power in circuits:

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{i}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{i}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{R}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{V}}^{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{R}}}$
