What is the efficiency of a 265W motor that draws 4.30A from 120V line?
How much energy in Joules does this motor use in 1.50 hour?

thanks in advance..

What have you tried? Do you know what power is?

power has two equations :
1) P(t)= W/t = -PE/t = q.V/t = I.V
2) P= I (I.R)

Power can also be expressed as P=V^2/R

Now what is efficiency defined as?

Finally, what information are you given and what can you do with it?

If W/t=IV
W=J/s
I=Amps
V=Volts

You just plug it in, then find the efficiency.
