2) P= V2/R ... Given Pinitial = 100W Vinitial = 220V ...Putting these values in the above equation,R = 222 ohms

    now, Vfinal = 110V.. hence,Pfinal = 110 x 110/ 22x 22 = 25 W


3) The general convention in case of Work is; if work is done by the system,it is taken as positive while work done on the system is taken as negetive... Since the work is done by the man on the box, the answers been given as +ve
