- The resistance \(R_1\) is made of aluminum (Al) and is smaller than \(R_2\)
- The resistor \(R_2\) is made of plumbium (Pb), i.e. lead.
The constant current \(I\) passing through the two resistors heats the larger resistor \(R_2\) more than \(R_1\). The larger resistor \(R_2\) glows, while \(R_1\) hardly heats up compared to \(R_2\).
