Two bulbs of 100w and 40w respectively connected in series across a 230v supply which bulb will glow bright and why?

Since two bulbs are in series they will get equal amount of electrical current but as the supply voltage is constant across the bulb (P=V^2/R).So the resistance of 40W bulb is greater and voltage across 40W is more (V=IR) so 40W bulb will glow brighter.

There are a Transformer and an induction machine. Those two have the same supply. For which device the load current will be maximum? And why?
Last Answer : The motor has max load current compare to that of transformer because the motor consumes real power and the transformer is only producing the working flux and it’s not consuming. Hence the load current in the transformer is because of core loss so it is minimum.... A series has R=5Ω , L=0.15mH ,and C=100μF and is supplied with 230V,50Hz single phase.
