    Transformer efficiency/primary current (help )

    Transformer efficiency/primary current (help!!) Real transformers are not 100% efficient. That is, the efficiency, in percent, is represented by e = (100%) Ps/Pp. A step-down transformer has an efficiency of 92.5% is used to obtain 23.0 V from the 125 V household voltage. The current in the...

    Transistor radio/kWh problem

    Re: **Transistor radio/kWh problem** So if one kWh = 3.6E6 J, and the total energy is 518,400 J.. (3.6E6)/(518400) = 6.9444 --> (6.9444)(6) = 41.666 Is 41.666 cents the answer? I only have two more tries left and I don't want to get it wrong. I'm not sure if those are the correct unit...

    Transistor radio/kWh problem

    **Transistor radio/kWh problem** A transistor radio operates by means of a 10.0 V battery that supplies it with a 48 mA current. (a) If the cost of the battery is $0.55 and it lasts for 300 h, what is the cost per kWh to operate the radio in this manner? 3.819 dollars/kWh...
