When your friends from Exercise 15 plug a large home entertainment system into the outlet, it doesn't work properly because the voltage rise provided by the extra outlet is only 60 V. The power company provides a voltage rise of 120 V, so where is the missing voltage?

    Voltage loss is due to use of thin connection wires.

    Explanation:

    -According to Ohm's Law, voltage is proportional to current.

    -The voltage drop in each wire is proportional to the current.

    -The more current (or charges per second) you try sending the harder it is.

    -Hence, electrostatic energy is lost on the way which results in voltage loss.
