Unformatted text preview: 3. The chemical energy of the battery is reduced by ∆E = qε, where q is the charge that passes through in time ∆t = 6.0 min, and ε is the emf of the battery. If i is the current, then q = i ∆t and ∆E = iε ∆t = (5.0 A)(6.0 V) (6.0 min) (60 s/min) = 1.1 × 104 J. We note the conversion of time from minutes to seconds. ...
