## Homework Statement

A high-voltage transmission line with a resistance of 0.345 ohms /km carries a current of 1.05 kA. The line is at a potential of 600 kV at the power station and carries the current to a city located 173 km from the power station.

A>What is the power loss due to resistance in the line?

B>What fraction of the transmitted power does this loss represent?

## Homework Equations

P=IV

p=V^2(R)

## The Attempt at a Solution

part A>I used the kilometers to figure out the resistance from the distance. I then tried pluging in the values into the equations but the answer is not working.

partB> In order to calculate the fraction I want to make sure I am setting hte first part of the equation correctly. But I assume that you subtract the power loss from the original power.
