    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A resistor is connected across the terminals of a 9.0-V battery which delivers 1.1x10^5 J of energy to the resistor in six hours what is the resistance to the resister?

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    i got 4.89x10^-7 but i dont think its correct.

    Find the rate of delivery of energy. That is power.
    Using Power P = V^2/R, find the value of R
