For series, let Resistance be ( R ) each, since same material thre, beth and dimensions are is tauce, will have same [ begin{array}{l} quad R_{e q}=2 R text { And for parallel } end{array} ] [ begin{aligned} R_{e q} &=frac{1}{frac{1}{R}+frac{1}{R}} &=frac{R}{2} end{aligned} ] Heat produced = i ( ^{2} R ) (where " is worent) matio is: [ frac{i^{2}(2 R)}{i^{2}left(frac{R}{2}right)}=4: 1 ]
