I know that Tom wants us to at least have one go at answering the question ourselves but Ihave been haunted by this question for almost a week now and I don't feel ay closer to answering it.

I have been given the electron charge which is 1.6*10

How much energy does the kettle transfer?

How am I meant to answer this questin if I am not given some sort of other energy to compare the electric enegy to?

Please help
