As we learnt in 

Power dissipiated in external resistance -

P=(\frac{E}{R+r})^{2}R

-

 

 For\ 6 \Omega,    P = 60 \times 4.2 J/s

                                 = 252 \omega= I_{1} ^{2}R

\Rightarrow I ^{2}_1= \frac{252}{6}= 42A

 For\ 3 \Omega,  I_{2}= \left(\frac {10}{5} \right )I_{1}= 2I_{1}

\therefore Rate of Heat production =I_{2}^{2} \times 3 = 4(I_{1}^{2} \times 3)= 12 I_{1}^{2}

= 12 \times 42 J = \frac{12 \times 42}{4.2}cal=120\ cal
