A high voltage transmission line with a resistance of 0.06 ohms/km carries a current of 1337A. The line is at a potential of 500kV at the power station and carries the current to a city lovated 191km from the power station.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is teh power loss due to resistance in the line? Answer in units of MW.

I know the formulas, but don't know how to start it or what the potential means.
