chain of 12 identical christmas tree lights connected in series is to be placed across a 120 v source of emf each light should dissipate 15w what resistance must each of the light bulbs have?

Let the resistance of each bulb be R.
Equivalent resistance, Rs = 12R
Current in the circuit, I =
Since all bulbs are connected in series, same current (I) flows through each bulb.
Therefore, Power used in each bulb, P = I2R
