We know that the rate at which electrical work is done (electrical power) is defined as: P = I2*R , or: P = V2/R The formula P = V2/R implies that if the resistance of an electrical component (R) (for example, a light bulb) is decreased, the power consumption (P) will increase hence the light bulb will grow brighter. But the formula P = I2*R implies that if R is decreased, P is also decreased and the light bulb will get dimmer. They can't both be right. What is your answer to this apparent anomaly? Thank you.
