Two resistors with resistances 5Ω and 10Ω are to be connected to a battery of 6V so as to obtain:

(i) Minimum current

(ii) Maximum current. How will you connect the resistances in each case?



Two identical resistors are first connected in series and then in parallel to a source of supply. Find the ratio of heat produced in two cases.
