A of the layer that melts, which permits us to determine the thickness in terms of the volume
and the area:
hA = Volume h= or Volume
A Given the density ρ = 917 kg/m3, we can find the volume of the ice from ρ = (1)
Volume (Equation 11.1), where m is the mass of the ice.
Volume = m ρ (2) The mass m of the ice determines the heat Q required to melt it, according to Equation 12.5
Q = mL (12.5) In Equation 12.5, L = 33.5 ×104 J/kg is the latent heat of fusion for water (see Table 12.3).
In order to find the maximum thickness of ice the defroster can melt, we will assume that all
the heat generated by the defroster goes into melting the ice.
The power output P of the defroster is the rate at which it converts electrical energy to heat,
so we have that
t or Q = Pt (6.10b) where t is the elapsed time (3.0 minutes). The power output P is, in turn, found from the
operating voltage V and current I: P = IV

31. SSM REASONING AND SOLUTION As a function of temperature, the resistance of the wire is given by Equation 20.5: R = R0 1 + α (T − T0 ) , where α is the temperature 2 coefficient of resistivity. From Equation 20.6c, we have P = V / R . Combining these two
equations, we have
R0 1 + α (T – T0 ) 1 + α (T – T0 ) 1 2 where P0 = V /R0, since the voltage is constant. But P = P0 , so we find
2 = P0 1 + α (T – T0 ) or 2 = 1 + α (T − T0 ) Solving for T, we find
+ 28° = 250 °C
T= 1 + T0 = Chapter 20 Problems 1073 32. REASONING Substituting V = 1 V0 into Equation 20.7 gives a result that can be solved
directly for the desired time.

2 = sin 2π f t Using the inverse trigonometric sine function, we find 2π f t = sin −1 ( 1 ) = 0.524
2 In this result, the value of 0.524 is in radians and corresponds to an angle of 30.0º. Thus we
find that the smallest value of t is t= 0.524

a. The average power P delivered to the copy machine is equal to the square of the
rms-current Irms times the resistance R, or P = I rms R (Equation 20.15b). Both Irms and R
b. According to the discussion in Section 20.5, the peak power Ppeak is twice the average
power, or Ppeak = 2 P .
a. The average power is
P = I rms R = ( 6.50 A ) (18.6 Ω ) = 786 W (20.15b) b. The peak power is twice the average power, so
Ppeak = 2 P = 2 ( 786 W ) = 1572 W

SSM REASONING The average power is given by Equation 20.15c as P = Vrms / R . In
this expression the rms voltage Vrms appears. However, we seek the peak voltage V0. The relation between the two types of voltage is given by Equation 20.13 as Vrms = V0 / 2 , so
we can obtain the peak voltage by using Equation 20.13 to substitute into Equation 20.15c. SOLUTION Substituting Vrms from Equation 20.13 into Equation 20.15c gives P= 2

2R Solving for the peak voltage V0 gives V0 = 2 RP = 2 ( 4.0 Ω ) ( 55 W ) = 21 V
36. REASONING Because we are ignoring the effects of temperature on the heater, the
resistance R of the heater is the same whether it is plugged into a 120-V outlet or a 230-V
outlet. The average power output P of the heater is related to the rms outlet voltage Vrms and
the heater’s resistance R by P =...
