# An Electric Kettle Rated at 220 V, 2.2 Kw, Works for 3 Hours. Find the Energy Consumed and the Current Drawn. - Science

An electric kettle rated at 220 V, 2.2 kW, works for 3 hours. Find the energy consumed and the current drawn.

#### Solution

Given:
V = 220 V
P = 2.2 kW = 2.2 x 103 w
t = 3 h

Electrical energy, E = P x t
= 2.2 kW x 3 h
= 6.6 kWh

Current drawn, I = P/V
= 2.2x10^3/220
= 10 A

Is there an error in this question or solution?
