im trying to study for my exam by doing problems, however im stuck with this one. any help is appreciated
In doing a load of clothes, a clothes drier uses 16 A of current at 240 V for 59 min. A personal computer, in contrast, uses 2.3 A of current at 120 V. With the energy used by the clothes drier, how long (in hours) could you use this computer to "surf" the Internet?
t * 2.3 * 120 = (59/60) * 16 * 240
