A hair dryer with a resistance of 30 Ω is plugged into a 120-volt socket. If the hair dryer is used for 10 minutes, how much electrical energy is used?

R = 30 Ω                            W = V²t / R

V = 120 V                               = (120)² (600) / 30

t = 10 * 60 (600s)                    = 288 000 J

E= P*t

=(1.000)*(40*60)

=(1.000)* (2400)

=2400 J

E = Pt in Joules per second

=1000x40x60

=2,400,000 J/s

The power is not 1000 W but 1 W and the units for energy is not J/s rather W.s which is equivalent to J.
