The power P delivered to a load by a current of i amperes through a resistance of 19 ohms, when 110 volts are supplied at one end of the line, is given by the formula P = 110i - 19i2 . Determine the maximum power that can be delivered.

maximum power in watts =

Oh, sorry I didn't realise that I needed to provide my answer. I just want to check to see if I obtain the correct answer.

My answer is:

P=110i-19i^2

P'=110-38i

0=110-38i

i=2.8947

P"=-38 therefore a max

Max Power in watts = 2.8947

Hmmm. I agree with i at 2.89 amps

Powermax=put i in the formula for power given, and you have it.
