# Q.12.    Several electric bulbs designed to be used on a 220 V electric supply line, are rated 10 W. How many lamps can be connected in parallel with each other across the two wires of 220 V line if the maximum allowable current is 5 A?

Given: V=220V and P=10W

Let x be the number of bulbs.

I = 5A              and      V=220V

For x bulbs of resistance 4680 Ohm, are connected in parallel to obtain 44 Ohm equivalent resistance.

Thus,

Hence, 110 bulbs  of 4840 Ohm are connected in parallel to obtain 44 Ohm
