what is kwh


if the cost of electricity is 12 cent per kwh,hom much does it cost to heat the dinner

  • phyical science -

    6 / 60 = 0.1 hour

    1235 watts = 1.235 kw

    so

    1.235 * 0.1 = .1235 kw hr

    .1235 kw hr * .12 dollars/ (kw hr) = $0.01482
    or about a penny and a half

  • phyical science -

    so will the cost be 0.01cents
