A water pump that consumes 2 kW of electric power when operating is claimed to take in water from a lake and pump it to a pool whose free surface is 30 m above the free surface of the lake at a rate of 50 L/s. Determine if this claim is reasonable.
We have power, , ,
The claim is false as the claimed power consumption is 2 kW which is much less than the required power consumption (14.7 kW)

What do you mean by power rating of an electrical appliance? How to use it to calculate (a) the resistance of the appliance, and (b) the safe limit of current in it, while in use?
What is the difference between charge and energy? Are they interrelated
If a light burns out in a parallel circuit, what happens to other lights that may be connected and why?
The device which is used to measure electric current through a circuit is called a/an ____.
Does higher Ohms mean more Resistance?
What factors does the resistance of a conductor depend on?
Define one coulomb charge.
State Ohm's law. Draw a labelled circuit diagram to verify this law in the laboratory. Draw a V-I graph for the same and explain how would you use this graph to determine the resistance of the conductor.
