## Answers ( )

The average current that this cell phone draws when turned on is 0.451 A.

Explanation:

Given;

voltage of the phone, V = 3.7 V

electrical energy of the phone battery, E = 3.15 x 10⁴ J

duration of battery energy, t = 5.25 h

The power the cell phone draws when turned on, is the rate of energy consumption, and this is calculated as follows; where;

P is power in watts

E is energy in Joules

t is time in seconds The average current that this cell phone draws when turned on:

P = IV Therefore, the average current that this cell phone draws when turned on is 0.451 A.
