Transformer

Problem 34.45
Electricity is distributed from electrical substations to neighborhoods at 1.5×104 . This is a 60 oscillating (AC) voltage. Neighborhood transformers, seen on utility poles, step this voltage down to the 120 that is delivered to your house.
Part A
How many turns does the primary coil on the transformer have if the secondary coil has 110 turns?
Express your answer using two significant figures.
ANSWER: = Answer not displayed turns

Part B
No energy is lost in an ideal transformer, so the output power from the secondary coil equals the input power to the primary coil. Suppose a neighborhood transformer delivers 300 at 120 . What is the current in the 1.5×104 line from the substation?
Express your answer using two significant figures.
ANSWER: = Answer not displayed
