No answer description available for this question.

 Debashree said: (Feb 9, 2012) Power = P1+P2+P3+........

 Kavitha said: (Jun 11, 2015) Parallel indicates addition for power.

 Anjali said: (Jun 15, 2015) Total power dissipation (p) = 4*P = 4*1.2 = 4.8.

 Sangamesh B said: (Jun 26, 2015) What if they connected in series?

 Dinga said: (Feb 11, 2016) What happens to power if in series?

 Dikshant Chanchal said: (Apr 18, 2016) Power dissipated in any sort of connection, either parallel, series or parallel/series it remains same. ie pt = p1 + p + p3 + ...... pn.

 Simha Katrahalli said: (Jan 24, 2017) Power in all the circuits like series and parallel is additive.

 Hemalatha. G said: (Aug 6, 2019) Power dissipation = No of branches * power transmission in the branch = 4 * 1.2w = 4.8w.

 Hiren Patel said: (May 26, 2020) In Parallel circuit total Power WT= W1 + W2 + W3 + W4. WT = 1.2 + 1.2 + 1.2 + 1.2, WT = 4.8W.
