# How Many 176 ω Resistors (In Parallel) Are Required to Carry 5 a on a 220 V Line? - Science

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

#### Solution

For x number of resistors of resistance 176 Ω, the equivalent resistance of the resistors connected in parallel is given by Ohm’s law asVIR
RV/I
Where,
Supply voltage, V= 220 V
Current, I = 5 A
Equivalent resistance of the combination = R,given as

1/R=x xx(1/176)

R=176/x

From Ohm's law

V/I=176/x

x=(176xxI)/V=(176xx5)/220=4

Therefore, four resistors of 176 Ω are required to draw the given amount of current.
