I'm super confused about this problem. I don't even know where to start. It seems very simple, but I just can't figure it out..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

An electrical resistor is connected to a battery. After a brief transient, the resistor assumes a nearly uniform, steady-state temperature of 95 degrees C, while the battery and lead wires remain at the ambient temperature of 25 degrees C. Neglect the electrical resistance of the lead wires.

Consider the resistor as a system about which a control surface is placed and the equation E_{stored}=E_{in}-E_{out}+Thermal_E_{generated}is applied. Determine the corresponding values of E_{in}(W), E_{out}(W), E_{g}(W), and E_{st}(W).

I have a feeling that alot of these terms cancel out.. but I just don't even know where to start.
