An electric generator with a power output of 3.0KW at a voltage of 1.5KV distributes power along cables of resistance 20.0Ω. The power loss in the cables is

Answer Details

Power input = 3KW = 3000W Voltage = 1.5KV = 1500V Current (I) = P/V = 3000/1500 = 2Amps. ∴ Power loss in the cables = I2R = 2 x 2 x 20 = 80W
