Which uses more energy,


Which uses more energy, a $250 \mathrm{~W}$ TV set in $1 \mathrm{~h}$, or a $1200 \mathrm{~W}$ toaster in 10 minutes ?


Energy used by $250 \mathrm{~W}$ TV set in $1 \mathrm{~h}=250 \times 1=250 \mathrm{Wh}$

Energy used by $1200 \mathrm{~W}$ toaster in $10 \mathrm{~min}$. (i.e., $1 / 6 \mathrm{~h})=1200 \times(1 / 6)=200 \mathrm{Wh}$

Thus, a $250 \mathrm{~W}$ TV set uses more energy in $1 \mathrm{~h}$ than a $1200 \mathrm{~W}$ toaster in 10 minutes.
