**Q.**The wattage of a bulb is 24W when it is connected to a 12 v battery. Calculate the effective wattage if it operates on 6v battery. Calculate the wattage if it operates on a 6 v battery.

Which of the following solution is correct for the above question and why and how to know which way to do?

Solution 1:-

P=V*I

I=P/V

I=24/12

I=2 A

Now V = 6v

New P = V*I = 6*2 = 12W

Solution 2:-

P = V

^{2}/R

R = V

^{2}/P

R = 12

^{2}/24

R = 6 Ohm

New P = V

^{2}/R = 6

^{2}/6 = 6W
