Power loss doubt: power loss = I^2 R Power loss = V^2 / R But the 2 equations are contradictory ,,, from the first equation , we can say " MORE THE RESISTANCE MORE THE POWER LOSS" from the second equation ,,, it is the other way round... Why does this happen? ( usually the 1st equation is used for power loss expression ,, but i dont know why ,, and i want to know why the second equation cant be used)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
