27. A gasoline generator converts chemical energy to potential energy. 28. A wind turbine converts kinetic energy to potential energy. 29. A battery converts chemical energy to potential energy. 30. What do you need to form a circuit? battery (charge pump), wires or conductors, and light bulb or other resistor.

31. Calculate the total resistance if you have three resistors in a series circuit that are: 4Ω, 5 Ω, and 7 Ω. 4 + 5 + 7 = 16 ohms 32. Calculate the total resistance in a parallel circuit if there are three resistors that are: 4 Ω, 4 Ω, and 6 Ω. 1/4 + 1/4 + 1/6 = 1.5 ohms

12
USE: V = I●R or P = V●I 33. If a 15 V battery is connected to a light bulb with 5 A of current, what is the resistors value? R = V/I = 15/5 R = 3 ohms 34. What is the potential difference supplied by an appliance that has a resistance of 40 ohms and draws 3 Amps of current? V = IR V = 3 x 40 = 120V 35. A 60 ohm resistor is plugged into a wall outlet, how much current flows through the resistor? (hint – you need to know the voltage in a wall outlet) I = V/R = 120/60 I = 2A

13
USE: V = I●R or P = V●I 36. What is the voltage supplied by a resistor using 12 Watts that draws 4 A of current? P = VI V = P/I = 12/4 = 3V 37. A 45 Watt light bulb is connected to a wall outlet. How much current exists in the light bulb? (hint: you should know the voltage in a wall outlet). P = VI I = P/V = 45/120 = 0.4A 38. A current of 4.5 amps flows through a light bulb and is connected to a 6 volt battery. What much power is the bulb using? P = VI 6 x 4.5 = 27 W

42. The cost of electricity is $0.09 per kW-h. If a 0.8 kW refrigerator runs for 8 hours, how much will it cost?.8kW x 8 hours = 6.4kW-h x.09 0.58 cents 43. If an appliance uses 500 watts of power, how much energy is used up (kW-h) if it is left on for 3hours? (hint – convert watts to kW first). 500/1000 =.5kW x 3 hours = 1.5kW-h 44. If an appliance runs for 5 minutes (300 seconds) and uses 125,000 J of energy, what is the power rating of the appliance? Use the equation: P = 416.7 W
