1 Task Use the following equations to answer the questions. You may need to rearrange the equations and convert the units. An example has been done for you. P = I x V V = I x R P = I 2 x R E = P x t E = Q x V Q = I x t power, P (watts, W) current, I (amperes, A) potential difference, V (volts, V) resistance, R (ohms, Ω) energy, E (joules, J) charge flow, Q (Coulombs, C) time, t (seconds, s) Example question A 6 V battery delivers 0.5 A of current. What is the power rating of the circuit? Step 1 Write down the variables you are given. V = 6 I = 0.5 P =? Step 2 Choose the formula that has those variables. Step 3 Substitute the numbers into the equation. P = I x V P = 0.5 x 6 3 W Step 4 Give the answer with the correct units. Questions 1. How much energy can an electric motor produce when it is plugged into a 110 V outlet with a total charge of 50 C passing through the motor? 2. If 80 J of energy is transformed over 1 hour by a button battery, what is its power? 3. If a light on a dolls house draws a current of 0.83 A, and has a resistance of 3.6 Ω, what is its power? Page 1 of 5
