#### Solution

Given, emf= 15 V, internal resistance, r= 2 Omega

(i) Total resistance of given resistors in series, Rs = 4 + 6 = 10 Omega

Now, current through series combination on, I= "emf"/("R"_"s" + "r") = 15/(10 + 2) = 15/12 = 1.25 A

In series, the same current will pass through each resistor

.·. electrical energy spent per minute in the 6Omega resistor, H= I(R) t = (1.25)(6) (60) = 562.5 J

(ii) Total resistance of given resistors in parallel, R= (1/4 + 1/6) ^-1 = 2.4 Omega

Current in parallel circuit, I = 15/(2.4 + 20) = 3.4 "A"

In parallel, each resistor is connected across the same voltage, say V.

Then, V = e - Ir= 15 - (3.4 x 2) = 8.18 volt

:. electrical energy spent per minute in the 6Ω resistor, H= "V"^2/"R" t = (8.18)^2/6 xx 60 = 669.1 J

Is there an error in this question or solution?
