a) Three bulbs in series :

Power dissipated in a resistance is given by the following expression :

P = VI = I^2R = V^2/R .......(1)

Power rating of a resistance gives the power dissipation that will take place in the resistance when full rated voltage is applied across it. Thus, 60 W bulb will dissipate 60 W power if full ...
