I got the first part of this question but can't seem to get the 2nd part..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 105 V potential difference is applied to a space heater that dissipates 1000 W during operation.

(a) What is its resistance during operation?

11.025 OHM

(b) At what rate do electrons flow through any cross section of the heater element?

wrong check mark s-1

Well that sounds like they want me to find the current, so i tried

[tex]P = i^2R[/tex]

[tex]i = sqrt((1000/11.025))[/tex];

i = 9.5238;

I submitted it konwing it would be wrong, because it said it wanted section s^-1. So i tried 1/i = .105, which is s, which was wrong, any ideas\? Thanks.
