**Do Now (10/10/13):**• What do Watts measure? • Where do you see labels in Watts?**Questions to ponder**• What is electrical power? • How do you calculate energy? • How do you calculate cost of electricity?**Calculating Cost of Power**• Cost is calculated as the amount per Kilowatt hour • Common cost is usually about $0.08 -$0.11 per kilowatt hour. • Calculations are made by multiplying the cost by the usage in kilowatt hours.**What is electrical power?**• Electric Power , P , is the rate at which electrical energy is converted into other forms of energy • Unit for power : Watt(W) • 1 kW = 1000 W**Energy**Time Power How do you calculate energy? Energy= Power x time**How do you calculate energy?**• If it takes 300 W kettle 30 minutes to boil the water, (a) what is the electrical energy used in kWh?**How do you calculate energy?**• Calculate energy in kWh • To find energy in kWh, the power must be inkW and time must be in hr. • 1 000 W = 1 kW!!!! • Energy (kWh) = Power(kW) x time(hr) = 300/1000 x 30/60 = 0.15 kWh It takes 300 W kettle 30 minutes to boil the water.**How do you calculate the cost of electricity?**• Step 1 : Calculate the electrical energy in kWh • Step 2 : Find the cost of electricity. Electrical energy is sold in kWh For example , each unit costs 20 cents. This means each kWh costs 20 cents**How do you calculate the cost of electricity?**• Calculate cost of electricity • Step 1 : Calculate energy in kWh. Energy (kWh) = Power(kW) x time(hr) = 300/1000 x 30/60 = 0.15 kWh • Step 2: Calculate cost Total cost = Energy (kWh) x cost per unit = 0.15 x 20 = 3 cents It takes 300 W kettle 30 minutes to boil the water. Calculate the cost if each units costs 20 cents.
