# The Resistance of 100 W (220 V) Bulb is Greater than that of 60 W (220 V) Bulb. is It True Or False? - Physics

Numerical
The resistance of 100 W (220 V) bulb is greater than that of 60 W (220 V) bulb. Is it true or false?

#### Solution

We know that, R = "V"^2/"P"

Thus, voltage remaining constant, resistance is inversely proportional to the power of the appliance; which means resistance of 60 W (220V) bulb is greater.
Hence, the given statement is false.
