Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points After a 6 . 01 resistor is connected across a battery with a 0 . 21 internal resistance, the electric potential between the physical battery terminals is 15 V. What is the rated emf of the battery? Correct answer: 15 . 5241 V. Explanation: Let : R = 6 . 01 , r = 0 . 21 , and V = 15 V . The current drawn by the external resistor is given by I = V R = 15 V 6 . 01 = 2 . 49584 A . The output voltage is reduced by the inter- nal resistance of the battery by V = E I r , so the electromotive force is E = V + I r = 15 V + (2 . 49584 A) (0 . 21 ) = 15 . 5241 V . 002 10.0 points A certain coffeepot draws 4 A of current when it is operated on 120 V household lines. If electrical energy costs 10 cents per kilowatt-hour, how much does it cost to oper- ate the coffeepot for 2 hours? 1. cost = 2.4 cents 2. cost = 8.0 cents 3. cost = 16 cents 4. cost = 9.6 cents correct 5. cost = 4.8 cents Explanation: Let : I = 4 A , V = 120 V , r = \$0 . 1 / kWh , and t = 2 h . The power that the coffeepot consumes is P = I V , so the cost to operate the coffeepot for 2 hours is C = I V t r = (4 A) (120 V) (2 h) (\$0 . 1 / kWh) parenleftbigg 1 kW 1000 W parenrightbigg = 9.6 cents . 003 10.0 points Four identical light bulbs are connected ei- ther in series (circuit A), or in a parallel-series combination (circuit B), to a constant voltage battery with negligible internal resistance, as shown. E Circuit A E Circuit B benavides (jjb2356) homework 19 Turner (59130) 2 Assuming the battery has no internal re- sistance and the resistance of the bulbs is temperature independent, what is the ratio of the total power consumed by circuit A to that consumed by circuit B; i.e. , parenleftbigg P A,Total P B,Total parenrightbigg ? 1. P A P B = 1 4 correct 2. P A P B = 1 2 3. P A P B = 4 4. P A P B = 16 5. P A P B = 1 8 6. P A P B = 1 7. P A P B = 2 8....
