Question #349044

An electric kettle is connected to a 120-V

outlet and has 11.5 A of current flowing

through it. What is the resistance in the

kettle?

Expert's answer

Given:

"U=120V;"

"I=11.5A;"

Find:

"R" - resistance of the kettle.

**Solution:**

Let's use Ohm's law fro part of circuit:

"I=\\frac{U}{R}" , "R=\\frac{U}{I}=\\frac{120V}{11.5A}=10.435\\Omega."

**Answer:**

"R=10.435\\Omega."
