A nuclear burning power plant produces a total power of 1.1kW. It serves a community that requires 2.85 x 107 kJ of power over the entire year. How many days per year does the power plant need to operate to provide all this power?

300 days
250 days
365 days
200 days
150 days

  1. 1.1kW = 1.1kJ/s

    T = 2.85*10^7kJ * 1s./1.1kJ * 1h/3600s *
    1day/24h = 300 Days.
