A high-voltage transmission line with a resistance of 0.30 /km carries a current of 1040 A. The line is at a potential of 680 kV at the power station and carries the current to a city located 159 km from the station.

(a) What is the power loss due to resistance in the line?

b) What fraction of the transmitted power does this loss represent?
