00-gauge copper wire has a diameter of 9.266 mm. Calculate the power loss in a kilometer of such wire when it carries 1.00×102 A .
Step 1 of 3
Here, d is the diameter of the wire.
Substitute 1.72 x 10-8 for and 9.266 mm for d and 1 km for l.
Now calculate the power loss in the wire from formula,
P = I2R
Substitute 1.00 x 102 A for I and 0.255 for R.
P = ( 1.00 x 102 A)2 ( 0.255 )
= 2550 W
The power loss in the wire is 2550 W
