##### 1 Answer

The operating resistance is

The operating current is

#### Explanation:

To determine your washing machine's operating resistance you need to combine the formula for power with the equation for **Ohm's Law**.

Electric power is defined as the total work done per second by a current passing through a potential difference

**Ohm's Law** states that the current passing through a conductor is *directly proportional* to the potential difference applied to that conductor

Use the equation for Ohm's Law and replace the current,

This means that the resistance will be equal to

Use this value in the equation for Ohm's Law to determine the operating current current in normal use
