    Use conservation of energy to solve for [itex]V_0[/itex].






    Does this look right?

    Looks okay until the last step (units).

    EDIT -- BTW, this belongs in the homework forums, not the general forums.

    Do you mean the summation of the p's? I don't see a unit error, could you point it out please:)

    I didn't see the "Engineering" Forum over at Homework help section, but now I found it, thanks for the heads up!

    Vo should not have units of watts. Just a small typo.

    OIC, thank you!

    [itex]V_0[/itex] should have units of Volts!

    Other than that, the problem looks OK?

    I will post other problems in the homework section, thanks for the help!

    it is right if you are taking (3v) as a combination volt*amp. as previously u have takev 3*vo as power. so it looks right to me.
