1. A

Explanation: Power =

Energy consumed = 7.2 kJ

= 7.2 × 1000 J = 7200 J

Time taken = 2 minutes

= 2 × 60 seconds = 120 s

Power= (7200 J/ 120s)

= 60 J/s

= 60W

Thus, the power of this electric bulb is 60 watts.

1. A

Explanation: Power, P = 60 watts

= (60/1000) kilowatts

= 0.06 kW

Time t= 50 h

Now, putting P = 0.06 kW and t = 50 h in the formula :

Power =

0.06 kW =

Energy consumed = 0.06 kW × 50 h = 3kWh

Thus, the electrical energy consumed is 3 kWh or 3 units.

1. C

Explanation: 250 units of electrical energy means 250 kWh of electrical energy.

1 kWh of energy = 3.6 × 106 J

250 kWh of energy = 3.6 × 106 × 250 J

= 9 × 108 J

Thus 250 units of electrical energy is equal to 9× 108 joules.

1. C

Explanation: Energy can never be created nor destroyed hence the total energy will remain constant.
