If a potential difference of 10 V causes a current of 2 A to flow for 1 minute, how much energy is transferred?
Potential difference, V = 10 V
Current, I = 2 A
Time, t = 1 minute = (1 x 60) s = 60 s
We know that the amount of energy transferred is equal to the work done.
V = W/Q
Or W = V x Q
= V x I x t (since Q = I x t)
= 10 x 2 x 60
= 1200 J
Thus, the amount of energy transferred is 1200 J.
