# An Electric Kettle for Use on a 230 V Supply is Rated 3000 W. for Safe Working, the Cable Connected to It Should Be Able to Carry at Least: (A) 2 a (B) 5 a (C) 10 a (D) 15 a - Science

An electric kettle for use on a 230 V supply is rated 3000 W. For safe working, the cable connected to it should be able to carry at least:

(a) 2 A
(b) 5 A
(c) 10 A
(d) 15 A

#### Solution

(d) 15 A
Current drawn by the kettle, I = I=P/V=3000/230=13A
So the cable should be able to carry more current than this and hence the answer is 15 A

Is there an error in this question or solution?
