A problem is "A high-voltage transmission line with a resistance of 0.305 Ω/km carries a current of 1.10 kA. The line is at a potential of 800 kV at the power station and carries the current to a city located 179 km from the power station. What is the power loss due to resistance in the line?".(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So the formulas i have are I^2R=power and (Change in V)^2/R. I just do not know how to put these together to save my life. I'd appreciate any help i can get. Thanks.
