Homework Help: Conversion of kWh to find cost

  1. Dec 4, 2008 #1
    A digital clock has an operating resistance of 11000 and is plugged into a 114-V outlet. Assume the clock obeys Ohm's law.

    If the owner of the clock pays $0.09 per kWh, what does it cost to operate the clock for 34 days?

    Where do I even begin?

    What current goes through the clock?

    How does power depend on the current and voltage?
