leaving the - terminal into the load?E5. A cable TV box is measured to consume 15 W of standby power when it is turnedoff and 20 W of power when it is turned on.(a) If 10 million such boxes are in use, and an average of half are turned on at any time,how much power do they require together?(b) If electric energy costs 10 cents per kWh to generate and distribute, how much does itcost to keep these boxes running for a month?(c) If standby power could be reduced from 15 W to 5 W, how much energy and moneywould be saved each year?E6.A homeowner wants to install enough solar panels on her roof to fully offset, onaverage, the roughly 7000 kWh that her utility bills say she uses each year.Solar panelsare marketed using their maximum power output under ideal conditions, but given her roofpitch, tree shading, and climate, the average power generated by each panel would only be1/7 of its maximum power level when averaged over the year, day and night. If each panelhas a maximum power of 250 W, how many panels does she need?E7. Consider a battery with a constant voltage that can supply 13 MJ of energy and 94Ah of charge before needing recharge. If it is connected to a load that is absorbing 3 W ofpower, what is the magnitude of the current flowing from the battery to the load?E8. The voltage of a battery can vary somewhat during use. If it might be 5% differentthan nominal, and it is driving a load with a resistance that might be 5% different than1

estimated, what % error might there be in the estimate of power supplied? Given this un-certainty, explain why it could be misleading to state voltage, current, and power estimatesusing all 10 digits that might be generated by a calculator.Please hand in by 4PM Friday 9/7 in the TA mailbox marked ”E3201” just inside the EEstudent lounge, 1301 Mudd.

As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
