a) 1 Trillion  KWatt= 10^12 KWatt

1 Terra watt=10^9 Kwatt

4 Trillion KWatt= 4*10^3 Terra Watt.

b) From wind power 4 Trillion Kwat*.035

=4*10^3*.035 Terra Watt

=4*1000*.035 Terra Watt;

=4*35=140Terra Watt

1 Terra Watt=10^9 Kwatt

And 1 trillion Kwatt =10^12 KWatt

So 4 Trillion Kwatt=4*10^12 KWatt=4*10^3*10^9 Kwatt=4*10^3 Terrwatt [As 10 ^9 KWatt=1 Terrawatt.
