1/R p = 1/R 1 + 1/R 2 + 1/R 3 v) Equivalent resistance is less than the smallest individual resistance. 25. Joule’s law of heating: It states that the heat produced in a conductor is directly proportional to (i) the square of the current I through it (ii) proportional to its resistances R and (iii) the time t for which current is passed. Mathematically, it can be expressed as H = I 2 Rt joule = I 2 Rt/4.18 cal or H = VIt joule = VIt/4.18cal 26. Electric energy: It is the total work done in maintaining an electric current in an electric circuit for given time. Electric energy, W = VIt = I 2 Rt joule 27. Electrical power: Electrical power is the rate at which electric energy is consumed by an appliance. P = W/t = VI = I 2 R = V 2 /R 28. Watt: It is the S.I. unit of power. The power of an appliance is 1 watt if one ampere of current flows through it on applying a potential differences of 1 volt across its ends. 1 watt = 1 joule/1 second =1 volt x 1 ampere or 1 W = 1 Js -1 = 1 VA 1 kilowatt = 1000 W 1Mega watt= 10 6 watt 1Gigawatt=10 9 watt 29. Kilowatt hour: It is the commercial unit of electrical energy. One kilowatt hour is the electric energy consumed by an appliance of 1000 watts when used for one hour. 1 kilowatt hour (kWh) = 3.6 x 10 6 J 33

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
