Unformatted text preview: A portable CD player uses a current of 15 mA at a potential difference of 3.5 V. (a) How much energy does the player use in 35 s? {b} Suppose the player has a mass of (1.65 kg. For what length of time could the player operate on the energyr required to lift: it through a height of 1.0 n1? Picture the Problem: A portable CD player consumes electrical power as it operates. Strategy: The power consumed by the CD player equals the amount ofcurrent it draws multiplied by the electrical potential at which the current is delivered {equation 2|-4]. We can use the power it consumes to find the amount oi" energy it uses in a specified time interval. We can also calculate the time it would take to increase the gravitational potential energy of the player if it converts electrical energy to mechanical energy at the same rate or power.
