Solution

Electric power required for working of iron, P = 1100 W
Duration for which the iron is operated daily = 2 h = \[2 \times 60 \times 60 = 7200 s \]

Electric energy consumed by iron in 7200 s is

\[E = 1100 \times 7200 = 7920000 J\]
Thus, total energy consumed in the month of April,
\[E' = E \times 30 = 7920000 \times 30 = 237600000 J\]
We know,
1 unit =\[ 3 . 6 \times {10}^6 J\]
or, \[1 J = \frac{1}{3 . 6 \times {10}^6} \] unit
Thus, 
\[237600000 J = \frac{237600000}{3 . 6 \times 1000000} = 66\] units
Cost of 1 unit of energy = Rs 5 
Thus, total electrical consumption expenses for the month of April = 66 \[\times\]5 = Rs 330
