1. Explanation:

First, we will convert 200 ml into kg as follows.

200 ml = 0.2 kg

Now, we will take the density of water as 1 g/ml.

And,   dT =

=

Also, we know that specific heat of water is 4.186 . Therefore, we will calculate the heat energy as follows.

q =

=

= 5.77 kJ

Now, we will calculate the power delivered as follows.

P =

=

= 69.1 W

It is given that efficiency is 75%. Therefore, input power will be calculated as follows.

= 92.13 W

Now, we will calculate the current as follows.

P =

I =

= 7.67 A

Therefore, we can conclude that current drawn from the car’s 12-V battery is 7.67 A.
