Compute the heat generated while transferring 96000 coulombs of charge in one hour through a potential difference of 50 V.
First of all we will calculate the current (I) by using the given values of charge (Q) and time (t). We know that:
We will now calculate the resistance by using Ohm's law:
Resistance, = 1.87
And, Time, t= 1h = 60x60s = 3600 s
Heat generated, H=
Thus, the heat generated is 4.8 x 106 joules.
