a 6V - 12W lamp is connected in series with a source of 12 V supply. calculate the value of the resistance R for the proper working of the lamp. what is the current flowing through the circuit.

Expert Answer:

P = 12W and V = 6V
Hence P = V^2/R
R = V^2/P = 36/12 = 3 ohms
 
Now, voltage in circuit = 12V
Hence, I  = V/R = 12/3 = 4 A
