How many 176 ohm resistors ( in parallel) are required to carry 5A on a 220V line?

Expert Answer:

let us assume there is n number of resistor required. since all the resistors are connected in parallel connection so the equivalence resistance = R = 176/n Ω
Using ohms law
V =IR
220 = 5×(176/n)
n = (176×5)/220
n = 880/220 = 4
So the number of resistor would be 4
