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?
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.
