I don't know what to do. In class, we learned about amps, volts,and resistance, but never horsepower.

the equations we used were like P=v^2/R or V=iR and stuff like that.

please help

**drwls**, Tuesday, March 11, 2008 at 2:45amThe produced power is useful power, and 1.2 hp is 895 W. (1 HP = 746 watts). Therefore the electrical input power is 895/0.85 = 1053 W.

Since electrical power P = I*V, the current is P/V = 1053/9.6 = 109.7 A

The waste heat is 15% of the input power, or 158 W
