If a resistor of 350 ohms is connected across a source of 175 volts, with a current of 0.05 amps what is the power dissipation?? It should be 87.50W right?? What if the voltage is reduced to 105 volts, what is the power being dissipated by the resistor?? The answer in the book says : 31.5W I'm not sure how they got that answer, how do I write it out to get the answer?? Thanks !!!
You must have been typing a bit fast. 175 volts on 350 ohms is 0.5 amperes, not 0.05 and yes that woul be 87.5 Watts. A substantial power resistor! Twinkle twinkle little star Power's equal I squared R Code ( (Unknown Language)): I = E/R implies 105/350 = 0.3 Amperes (0.3)*(0.3)*350 = 31.5 Watts Also P = E^2/R = ((105)*(105))/350 = 31.5 What kind of book gives you a problem, and does not show you how they got the answer? May be time for a new book!
Gee paultwang, You could have left your answer up, after all you went to the trouble of creating it, and a second opinion or viewpoint never ever hurts. cheers
If a 10 ohm resistance is connected to an a.c voltage of 100 sin(314t + 30deg), the power dissipated is? kindly reply
