3.

In a series circuit, the individual powers are additive.

 [A]. True [B]. False

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Ravulapalli Ashok said: (Jun 4, 2011) Because power=(i^2)R if each individual resistance is known. Current is same in series.

 Eranna said: (Jun 26, 2015) In series circuit powers are not additive but in parallel additive.

 Hussein Ahmed said: (Jan 12, 2016) Power is power, I mean that it hasn't direction, briefly the power additive at any case.

 San said: (Jul 13, 2017) Additive means?

 Jitendra Kumar said: (Nov 6, 2017) Power is additive in case of parallel circuit not in series circuit.

 Naresh V said: (Jan 19, 2018) Power is additive for parallel only.

 Praveen Kumar said: (Jun 30, 2018) Power additive in parallel circuit only to verify simply connect two different rating incandescent lamps in series, parllel and see the reading or wattmeter in each case.
