1003-B: The Power Formula

BACK to Ladder DC Circuit Math 1: Batteries and Resistors

In the previous pod, we learned the main formula for an electric circuit: Ohm's Law \( V = IR \). In this pod, we will learn a second crucial formula for comprehending electric circuits: The power Formula \(P = IV \).

$$ P = I V $$

  1. I have a current of 5 Amps and I have a 12 Volt battery. What is my power?
  2. I have a current of 3 Amps and a 30 Volt battery. What is my power?
  3. I have a 100 Watt light bulb hooked up to an outlet, which means it has 120 Volts. What is its current?
  4. My vacuum cleaner uses 1100 Watts, and I hook it up to an outlet, which means it has 120 Volts. What is its current?
  5. I have a 300-Watt device, and I know there is 2 Amps of current going through it. How much voltage does it have?
  6. I hook up a 4-volt battery, and it produces a current of 0.3 Amps through my light bulb. How much power does the light bulb have?
  7. I hook up two 4-volt batteries, and it produces a current of 0.6 Amps through my light bulb. How much power does my light bulb have?
