Statement of a problem № 41230


The potential difference across the filament of a lamp is maintained at a constant level while equilibrium temperature is being reached. It is observed that the steady-state current in the lamp is only one tenth of the current drawn by the lamp when it is first turned on. If the temperature coefficient of resistivity for the lamp at 20.0°C is 0.004 50 (°C)-1, and if the resistance increases linearly with increasing temperature, what is the final operating temperature of the filament?
