## Short notes on gas law for UTME

Boyle’s law Boyle’s law states that the volume of a fixed mass of gas is inversely proportional to the pressure provided that the temperature remains constant. If p is the pressure, v the volume and t the temperature in the Kelvin, Then the law can be stated as follows: P …

## How to solve questions on current of electricity for UTME

Question 1 A working electric motor takes a current of 1.5A when the p.d. across it is 250V. If its efficiency is 80%, the power output is{UTME 2001} A. 469.0W        B. 300.0W        C. 4.8W          D. 133.0W Solution Efficiency = (power output / power input)% power input = IV = 1.5*250 …
