Determine the wattage rating of the heater unit b. Assuming that the heater unit is used on a 230-V, 60-Hz service, find (1) the current in amperes taken by the heater unit. (2) the resistance of the unit. 16. When does the product of effective volts and effective amperes equal the power in watts in an ac circuit? 17. A full-wave rectifier supplies a pulsating dc voltage similar to the one shown in Figure 2–8. A voltmeter connected across the noninductive resistance load reads 250 V. What is the instantaneous maximum voltage impressed across the load?

Between 0° and 90°, the current is negative and the voltage is positive. Therefore, the product of volts and amperes for this part of the cycle gives negative power. Between 90° and 180°, both the current and the voltage are positive. This means that there is a pulse of power above the zero reference line. This positive power indicates that the supply is feeding energy to the electromagnetic field of the coil. In the period between 180° and 270°, there is a second pulse of negative power. This is due to the negative voltage and the positive current.

A noninductive heater element with a resistance of 60 ⍀ is supplied by a voltage that has a pure sine-wave shape. The instantaneous maximum value of the voltage is 120 V. a. What is the instantaneous value of the voltage 30° after the voltage is zero and increasing in a positive direction? b. What is the effective value of the current? c. Show the relationship between the voltage and current sine waves for one complete cycle. 6. In question 5, what is the power in watts taken by the heater unit?
