To remember the sequence of colour code -

B B ROY Great Britain Very Good Wife

- wherein

 

power =2W

colour code \rightarrow green black red brown

 

P=I^{2}R\\\\: for \: I_{max }\: \: \: R \: should\: be\: minimum\: from\: \: colour \\\\R_{min}=50\times 10^{2}\Omega

 

I_{max}=\sqrt{\frac{P}{R}}=\sqrt{\frac{2}{50\times 10^{2}}}

=2\times 10^{-2}A

 

I_{max}=20MA

 


Option 1)

20 mA

Option 2)

100 mA

Option 3)

0.4 mA

Option 4)

63 mA
