The generator at a power plant produces AC at 24,000 V. A transformer steps this up to 345,000 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?

  1. For transformers, the turns ratio equals the voltage ratio.

    2000/n = 24,000/345,000

    Solve for n.
