As we learnt in

if R=r -

P_{max}=\frac{E^{2}}{4r}

- wherein

Power delivered will be maximum

 

 P = VI = \frac{V^{2}}{R}

R_{hot} = \frac{V^{2}}{P}= \frac{200\times 200}{100}= 400\Omega

R_{cold}=\frac{400}{10}

            = 40\Omega

 


Option 1)

400\; \Omega

This option is incorrect.

Option 2)

200\; \Omega

This option is incorrect.

Option 3)

40\; \Omega

This option is correct.

Option 4)

20\; \Omega

This option is incorrect.
