    A standard 100 Watt (P = 100 W at 120 volts) light bulb contains a 7.10 cm -long tungsten filament. The high-temperature resistivity of tungsten is 9x10^-7 ohms/meter.

    (a) What is the Resistance of this tungsten filament?

    (b) What is the cross sectional area of this filament?

    (c) What current is flowing throw this bulb?
