A bulb is rated 120V.But it is to be connected to a mains supply of 80V.How does the current flow and brightness change?

Answer:
In the given case,
rated voltage, V1= 120V
applied Voltage, V2= 80V

Let current in the rated case be: I1
and in second case: I2

Since resistance of the bulb be R.

I1 = 120/R

I2 = 80/R

thus I1/I2 = 3/2

and since power is dirctly proportional to I2
Thus,
P1/P2 = 9/4
