Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Heat generated by the conductor because of DC is i*i*R

where i is the current and R is the resistance.

Does anybody know the heat generated by the same conductor for an AC?

For example frequency 5kHz, DC resistance-20 ohms, RMS current is 3A..

How do we calculate this?

I do not think that the DC formula apply here.

Thanks
