Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Belle on Tuesday, January 30, 2007 at 8:57pm.

100000W of power is delivered to the other side of a city by a pair of power lines with the voltage difference of 15000V.

a) how much current flows in the lines?
100000/15000 = 6.9 A

b) Each of the 2 lines has a resistance of 10 ohms. What is the voltage change along each line?
6.9 x 10 = 69

c)How much power is wasted as heat in both lines together?

how on earth do you do part c ? help would be appreciated. thanks!


You punched a wrong button somewhere for 100,000/15,000. I have 6.67.

That slight difference will change answer b a little.

c. Power = I2R
Where I is current in amperes and R is resistance in ohms.

Thank you!
