Question #10446

an immersion heater has rating of 2kw,220v while in use. calculate
1) current passing through it
2)its resistance

Expert's answer

P = I · U = U^2 / R

As P = 220 kw, U = 220 v:

R = U^2 / P = 220 * 220 /

220000 = 0.22 Ohm.

I = P / U = 220000 / 220 = 1000 A.

Answer: 1 kA,

0.22 Ohm.

As P = 220 kw, U = 220 v:

R = U^2 / P = 220 * 220 /

220000 = 0.22 Ohm.

I = P / U = 220000 / 220 = 1000 A.

Answer: 1 kA,

0.22 Ohm.
