##### Reference no: EM13666135

a) Compute the resistance of an automobile jumper cable. (Suppose that the length of the jumper cables is 2.5 m. Also suppose the wires are made of copper and have a cross-sectional area of 10 mm2.)

b) A current is required to start a typical car. What is the potential drop that occurs across the jumper cable? (Take the starting current to be 93 A.)

c) How much power is dissipated in the jumper cable when it carries that current?
