1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A typical electric blanket consumes 50 W of power when operating. What is the overall resistance of the blanket if it is designed to be plugged into a standard powerpoint? Power = 50 watts Voltage = 240 v (standard powerpoint) 2. Relevant equations I (current) = Voltage/ Resistance Power = V x I 3. The attempt at a solution So we are trying to find the overall resistance: R = V/I R = 240/I P/V = I ? 50/240 = I ? I = 0.2083333 (I don't think that looks right) So then, R= 240/0.2083333 R= 1152?? Resistance is 1152 ohms? These answers seem very strange to me and I am uncertain as to whether my logic is sound or not. If my logic is incorrect, could someone inform me of the logic of the correct way? Thanks!
