1.8) The current flowing past a pt. in a device is shown in Fig. 1.25. Calculate the total
charge through the point.
Q = (10 x 1)/2 + (10 x 1) = 15 µC
1.22) A lightning bolt strikes an airplane with 30 kA for 2 ms. How many coulombs of
charge are deposited on the plane?
Q = i*t = 30 x 1000 x (2 x .001) = 60 C
3.
Comprehensive Problem (20 points)
Solve the following problem from the textbook: 1.35
1.35) The graph represents the power drawn by an industrial plant between 8 – 8:30
AM. Calculate the total energy in MWh consumed by the plant.
[ (5x5) + (4x5) + (3x5) + (8x5) + (4x10) ]/ 60 = 2.333 MWhr
