# Calculate the Power Used in the 2 ω Resistor in Each of the Following Circuits: A 4 V Battery in Parallel with 12 ω and 2 ω Resistors. - Science

Calculate the power used in the 2 Ω resistor in each of the following circuits:

a 4 V battery in parallel with 12 Ω and 2 Ω resistors.

#### Solution

As the battery is connected in parallel to the 12 Î and 2 Î resistors, the potential difference across them will be the same.
Therefore, the power

P=V^2/R

P=4^2/2=16/2

=8 W

Is there an error in this question or solution?
