(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

You need a transformer to reduce a voltage of 150 V in the primary circuit to 25 V in the secondary circuit. The primary circuit has 130 windings and the secondary circuit is completed through a 55 ? resistor. (a) How many windings should the secondary circuit contain? (b) What is the effective resistance of the secondary circuit?

2. Relevant equations

V2/V1=N2/N1

Reff= R(N1/N2)^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I solved part A. N2 is 22 windings. However, part B is 1500 but I can't seem to get that answer! I used the above equation but it doesn't give me that answer. Is the Reff equation that I'm using wrong? Please help me!
