A wire of length *L* and 3 identical cells of negligible internal resistances are connected in series. Due to current, the temperature of the wire is raised by Δ*T* in a time *t*. A number *N* of similar cells is now connected in series with a wire of the same material and cross–section but of length 2 *L*. The temperature of the wire is raised by the same amount Δ*T* in the same time *t*. the value of *N* is
