What is the efficiency of this light bulb?
What is the efficiency of a crane that uses 5.10 x 105 J of energy to lift 1000 kg a vertical height of 32.0m?
A particular light bulb is known to be 7.5% efficient.
In general, the greater number of steps in transferring energy, the less efficient the process. Why is this so?
