The generator at a power plant produces AC at 24,000 V. A transformer steps this
up to 480,000 V for transmission over power lines. If there are 2,000 turns of wire in
the input coil of the transformer, how many turns must there be in the output coil?

• Physics -

Twenty times as many.
The voltage ration (2O) equals the turns ratio.
