At 7.35 cents per kiloway hr, A. what does it cost to operate a 10.0 hp motor for 8.00 hr? B. What does it cost to leave a 75W light burning 24 hr a day?

  1. Steve

    Just multiply by conversion factors to change from what you have to what you want:

    You have

    10.0 hp * 8.00 hr = 80.00 hp-hr * 0.0735$/kw-hr = 1088.435 $-hp/kw * 1.0 kw / 1.341 hp = $811.66

    A. I get a different answer

    10 hp = 7460 W = 7.46 kW

    Energy used (in kW-h) = 7.46*8 = 59.68

    Cost = (59.68 kW-h)*(0.0735 $/kW-h)
    = $4.38

  3. Elvis Rabohale

    A.
    1 hp = 0.745699872 kilowatts
    10hp X 0.745699872 X 8 = 59.66 kWh
    Cost = 59.66 X 0.0735 = R4.38472

    B.
    75W/1000 X 24 X 0.0735 = R0.1323
