Homework Help: Electricity and circuits

  1. Jun 6, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    It’s the dance, and you’re setting up your equipment in the ballroom of the Hilton. There are three wall outlets. Explain as well as you can how you set up two 1500 W speakers and appropriate equipment to ensure that you don’t lose power.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't really know what this question is looking for. Can someone help me? Thanks.

    At a guess, the question wants to know how you intend to get 2x1500 watts from 2 wall outlets without blowing a fuse. You need to find out the maximum power that a wall outlet can give in the Hilton ( if it's a Hilton in Europe, it will be different from the LA Hilton ).

    It's a pretty dumb way to frame a question.
