Question 8 of 10

9. 1 HP = _______ BTUs per Hr

Question 9 of 10

10. When you install a dimmer on a incandescent light bulb and add resistance to the circuit the light will dim and the amperage of the circuit will decrease.

Question 10 of 10

1. Jonathan Hoeppner says:

I though P=EI and E=IR. To #5.

1. Bryan Orr says:

Watts(P) = Amps(I) X Volts (E)

2. Martin M says:

Question number 2: I = P / U gives 5000W / 23V = 217 A

No?

3. Jamie Kitchen says:

746 watts per hp. Should have read the question more closely and realized it was asking for Btu’s.

4. Taylor Kristiansen says:

For Question #2 can you please explain how you got to that answer!? 1 Kw = 1000W, so using P= E x I, I just did 5000W (5Kw) / 23 = 217 .. I’m super confused!
