Rr = 80.

n = 4.

=80π^2 (50 cm/100cm)^2.

= 196 W.

NOTE: 80 π is constant.

n = 4.

=80π^2 (50 cm/100cm)^2.

= 196 W.

NOTE: 80 π is constant.

P= n I^2 Rr.

Where n=4, I=0.5=1/2A, Rr=73 ohms.

So P= (4) (1/2) ^2 (73) = 73W.

CORRECT OPTION IS B.

Where n=4, I=0.5=1/2A, Rr=73 ohms.

So P= (4) (1/2) ^2 (73) = 73W.

CORRECT OPTION IS B.

n = 4; i = 0.5; Here p is pi(3.14....);dl = 50cm.

P = n * I^(2) * Rr = >;P = Rr;

Rr = 80 * (9.8) * (1/4) = 196 W;(pi^(2) approximately 9.8).

P = n * I^(2) * Rr = >;P = Rr;

Rr = 80 * (9.8) * (1/4) = 196 W;(pi^(2) approximately 9.8).
