(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What is H, the rate of heat absorbtion by an air conditioner with an EER of 8.3 that operates at 1800 W? Recall that 1Btu=1055J. Express your answer in joules per minute.

2. Relevant equations

H/P=EER

3. The attempt at a solution

H=EER*P

H=(8.3 BTU/HR/W)*(1800 W)

H=(14,940 BTU / hr)*(1055 J / 1 BTU)*(1 hr / 60 min) = 262,695 J/min

This is wrong and I am not sure why. I thought maybe I was using the wrong number of sig figs, so I tried 260,000 J/min and 263,000 J/min. Anybody that can help me see what I am doing wrong, I would very much appreciate it.

Thank you

Chad
