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 = I

Where I is current in amperes and R is resistance in ohms.

Thank you!

Basically you want to take your current from part A - and your resistance from part B, plug them in into the equation P = I^2R and then subtract your answer from the original power. i.e. 100kwatts

**Nick**, Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 7:35pmi meant to say voltage and use the equation P = IV - then multiply by 2 since it's both lines KBAI
