Electrical Energy Quiz.

Labs written for the CARA Space Explorers, Fall 1993

This is meant to be handed out to the students.*

***********************************************************

constant you might need :

C of water = 1 calorie/(° C gram)

[1 calorie = 4.2 Joules = 42,000,000 (4 x 10) ergs]

formulas you might need :

Elec.Energy = (Elec.Power) x t

Elec.Power = V/R

Thermal Energy = m C (T - T)

***********************************************************

1. (2 pts.) A 200-Watt light bulb is on for 30 hours. How much electrical energy is consumed? Express your answer in units of kilowatt-hours. (A kilowatt is 1000 watts.)

2. (3 pts.) A resistor is dropped in a thermos of water. The resistor is 1 ohm, and a voltage of 4 V is applied for 20 minutes (1200 seconds). How much energy is dissipated in the resistor (Units!)?
