An electric toaster draws 3A rms current from a 240V, 50Hz source. Calculate the average power and peak value of the instantaneous power to the toaster.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] P(average) = I (rms) x V (rms) cos \phi [/tex]

Since the power factor is not mentioned in the question. Can the question be solved?
