6 C 72 joules power supplied by the battery

Work Step by Step

Voltage ,Vab,=-12V Current , Iab, = 3 amp We know that Charge flowing throw a point is = Current flowing x time Q = 3x2=6 column Vab = -12V Iab = 3 amp Power =-12x3=-36w power is negative so energy is supplied by the battery. when power is supplied by the battery Vab is negative it means point b is at higher potential . therefore, current will flow from b to a and electrons flow opposite to conventional direction from A to B . Hence electrons will enter b point
