Two bulbs whose resistance are in the ratio of 1 : 2, are connected in parallel to a source of constant voltage. What will be the ratio of power dissipation in these?

voltage across them is the same.
their respective resistance are : R & 2R
so Power for R = V2/R   , Power for 2R = V2/2R
​ratio 2:1
