# Heat watch

1. In an electrochemistry experiment the voltage between two electrodes is 10 Volts andthe current is 10 mA. Find the heat released after one minute.

For this I have calculated resistance R=V/I = 10/0.01 = 1000 ohms

and then used tV^2/R = 60*0.01^2 / 1000 = 0.000006

is this correct?

Umm.. this is the full question. In fact I copied and pasted it

It's the word 'heat' which is ambiguous as it says nothing about the units the answer should be stated in. i.e. heat could be temperature difference or power or energy expended etc.

I'm assuming it's energy released in this example:
