An Iron with a power rating of 1580 W is connected to an outlet with a voltage rating of 115 V. Calculate the amount of current used by the iron.

Hey let me know if you have any questions and please give me a rating :)

You can use a Power equation for this problem:

P = Power = 1580 Watts

I = Current = ? Amps

V = Voltage = 115 Volts

P = IV

solve for current:

I = P/V

I = 1580 / 115

I = 13.74 Amps

An electron moves 4.5 m in the direction of an electric field of strength of 325 N/C. Determine the change in the electrical potential energy.

As a particle moves a distance of 10.0 m along an electric field of strength 75 N/C, its electrical potential energy decreases by 4.8 x 10^(-16) J. What is the particle's charge?

Hey, since these questions typically cost money, can you please give me a rating before I send you the solutions?

May 19th, 2015

I was sure I just gave you a 5-star rating for the first question. I will try to submit it again

I think you have to pay another dollar to give me a rating... Once it goes through, I'll give you answers to both questions to save you a dollar
