Determine the resistance of a 30 km long wire. b. Assume that the line transfers 1000 MW of power at a potential difference of 500 kV. What is the current through the wires? c. How much power is lost during transmission? What fraction of the transmitted power is lost?
R=p*l/A P=I*deltaV P=I^2*R
The Attempt at a Solution
so, for the first one i determined the resistance to be 4,23*10^14 ohm, the current through the wire is 2000A . I am not quite sure for the above values and because of that, i get weird values for the lost power in c) I would very much appreciate a bit of help with the exercise
